Flamingos and whiskered terns

After yesterday, 5 May, in Lesbos, Greece, today 6 May on this island where one may see bird migration so well, as this report and many others show..

Early in the morning in the wetland: crested larks. Three yellow-legged gulls and a common tern near the water.

A black-headed wagtail sitting on a branch.

A corn bunting on a leafless branch.

Seven greater flamingos flying.

This video from Italy is called Greater Flamingo (Phoenicopterus roseus) in a protected natural area in Sesto Fiorentino (Florence).

Kentish plover. Black-headed bunting. Hooded crow.

Spanish sparrows. A female marsh harrier sitting on the ground. Some whiskered terns flying.

A squacco heron on the bank near the mouth of the Christou river.

The jay is still collecting branches for its nest.

This blog will continue about what happened later on 6 May on Lesbos, so stay tuned.
