Flowers and birds of Tilos, Greece


This is a 17 July 2014 video showing Tilos island in Greece from a passenger aircraft.

After 22 April 2019 came 23 April on Tilos.

We went by bus from Megalo Chorio to Livadia, the harbour village.

Near Eristos beach, a male golden oriole on his spring migration flying.

In Livadia we walked along the coastal boulevard, named after the late local leftist doctor and mayor Tasos Aliferis.

There were various Protea flowers, originally from South Africa.

Some of these proteas grew in gardens, other, feral, ones on the upper part of the beach.

Also autochthonous wild flowers on the beach: these European searocket flowers. Between tamarisk trees.
