A sunny day with temperatures rising to 24 degs but a very strong wind. First stop was to visit the Demoiselle crane (first ever for Lesbos) again as it was still in the same field and just behind us a reed warbler was singing away.
'I'm a celebrity get me out of here'
'Got any bread'
Next stop was to pay our respects to the scops owl mob at the mini soccer pitch and also try to see the middle-spotted woodpecker that was nesting close by. It was then time to earn brownie points as I promised an hours 'shopping' for the other half in Kalloni. Sat in a cafe some of the time then did the business, it was surprising to see the variety of shops that lurked in the little back roads of this 'agricultural' town.
Jay - different to ours
Scops Owl - Only Found Three This Morning
After lunch in the village we went back along the East river finding a group of ibises feeding in the shallows. The wind was still very strong and most small birds were hiding up so we drove out to Acklederi beach again seeing almost absolutely nothing. We finished off at the saltpans as usual finding nothing new, I counted the 320 strong flock of avocets that is always there, then photographed a couple of common terns.
