Welcome to the Cape Tenaro Birder Blog, recording observations of migrant birds and other wildlife at the southern most tip of the Greek mainland.
With limited tree and scrub cover Cape Tenaro is a really great place to observe bird migration. In spring it is the first land fall for migrants arriving from North Africa after a 400km crossing of the Mediterraean Sea; while in the autumn the long, narrow peninsula of the Mani funnels migrant birds moving south.
We arrived yesterday afternoon in torrential rain. Luckily this soon cleared through to reveal a good selection of grounded migrants. Full details to follow later but fow here is a pIcture of one of the 5 Collared Flycatchers we saw.
