Birds around the village

May 2011
The first sunny day and a walk to Fokai and back along the cliff tops. In an hour I saw a purple heron, a grey heron and four egrets. There are many flycatchers, but as yet no yellow birds (these arrive together each year in mixed flocks). I have not see long legged buzzards (buteo rufinus) which are normally present. Last week in Avlona I saw a golden oriole. Later I watched a hen harrier hunting by coursing the edges of fields. while a Bonelli's eagle flew above the mountains. Cuckoos have arrived for the second year running, but the migration season is running at least three weeks late.
