This is a video about black storks nesting in Portugal.
As this blog said earlier, on the night of Tuesday 4 May we arrived in Skala Kallonis, Lesbos island, Greece.
Next morning, 5 May, Kentish plovers in a wetland not far away. Four little stints as well.
Many crested larks.
A greenfinch singing. And a black-headed bunting, on the top of a bush; probably, it arrived recently, back from migration.
A northern wheatear. A Cetti’s warbler singing.
Then, a stone curlew. Difficult to spot, as its camouflage colours hide it well in this sandy area.
A couple of jays (Middle East subspecies), breaking off shrub branches for their nest.
A corn bunting on a telephone wire.
A black-headed wagtail and a black-headed bunting, sitting together on a bush. Though belonging to different songbird families, their colours make them look rather similar.
A female marsh harrier.
Then, a black stork. First wading in the water, then flying.
This blog will continue with more entries about Lesbos, so stay tuned.
