From Tilos golden oriole to Kos flamingos


This April 20213 video is called GREECE. AEGEAN SEA. TILOS ISLAND. SEA ARRIVAL – APPROACH TO PORT OF LIVADIA.

After 13 May 2019 on Tilos came 14 May. For the last time, we heard a golden oriole sing in the Tilos morning.

We boarded the ferry to Kos island.

In Kos city, swifts flying.

In Tigaki village, greenfinch sound.

This video from Greece says about itself:

These are just a few of the 70 different species of birds we found on the delightful island of Kos over just a week in early May 2012. The northern migration did not really get into full swing until about the 9th, so our week was almost over before we spotted the hoards of Bee Eaters heading north ………. a wonderful sight and sound…

We were on the first holidaymakers’ flight out of Birmingham, so there were no crowds, just a lot of peace and quiet punctuated by the occasional ‘lifer’.

In the afternoon, we went to the Alikes lake. It used to be a salt pan; now it is a nature reserve.

Scores of black-winged stilts near the shore.

A bit further, about 15 flamingos.

Two ruddy shelducks swimming.

Cetti’s warblers sing.

A little egret.

A crested lark flies to a treetop.

Squacco herons.

A green sandpiper.

Holy orchid flowers.

Barn swallows nest under a roof near a swimming pool. They drink from the pool.
