After our arrival on Kos island on 14 May 2019 came 15 May. Like on 14 May, we went again to the Alikes salt lake nature reserve. Where we saw this black-winged stilt.
Like on Tilos, during the night we had heard a scops owl. As soon as we had entered the gate of the nature reserve, we heard Cetti’s warbler sound.
Both red-rumped swallows and barn swallows flying.
A hooded crow.`
Sometimes, the black-winged stilts stand on small islands …
sometimes, they stand in shallow water…
… and sometimes they fly.
Like this bird. A female, as males have more black on their heads.
There was a male house sparrow as well; collecting nesting material.
Stay tuned, as there will be more on this blog about the birds of Kos!
