Last Day - migration still a bit thin ........

Today was our last day for this year, we were out looking for migrants until 12 noon and then had to head off to Athens for a flight home. This wil be the last blog with daily news however I will also do a couple of summary blogs over the next week.

Winds were very light all morning (unlike Antikythira) with clear skies, as a result migration was again slow. Counts for the more numerous species were 11 Golden Oriole, 25 Garden Warbler, 7 Icterine Warbler and 10 Spotted Flycathcher. There also appeared to be a few extra Black-headed Buntings, a total of 13 were seen, including two on a walk out to the lighthouse. The only other bird of note was Cuckoo at Paliros.

Raptors were limited to a single Marsh Harrier that went north at 10.40.
