Peacocks, squacco heron, lizard in Tilos, Greece


This February 2014 video is about Tilos island in Greece.

After 2 May 2019 came 3 May on Tilos.

We went to Plaka beach.

As we walk from Agios Antonios, a yellow-legged gull on a rock in the sea. A Sardinian warbler sings.

Holy orchid flowers along the road.

A Sardinian warbler cleans its feathers after bathing. Water drops.

Long-legged buzzard sound.

Eight bee-eaters fly past.

So does a raven.

Agios Nikolaos, 3 May 2019

We reach the Agios Nikolaos chapel, from 1833.

Between the chapel and the beach, there are eucalypt trees and peacocks.

Under the peacocks was the beach.

This 11 July 2013 video, featuring peacocks, says about itself:

Plaka is a long, beautiful beach on the northwestern tip of Tilos with a strip of shingle between the sand and the sea. It has lots of trees for shade and does not get too crowded, even during the peak season, in August.

Flowers, 3 May 2019

As we walked back, these flowers.

Snake-eyed lizard, 3 May 2019

And this snake-eyed lizard sunbathing on a rock.

As we approached Agios Antonios, thirty bee-eaters flying overhead.

Even closer to Agios Antonios, a migrating squacco heron on the rocky coast.
