Some winter visitors have arrived in Athens, with the first cold days. Today, the temperature went down to 5 degrees Celcius. Taking a walk around the Monastery of Kesariani, in Hymetus Mt., I managed to record more than 20 beautiful Hawfinches, together with Tits, Chiffchafs, Wrens, and other birds.
The bird list for Sunday, November 20th 2005, is the following:
Blackbird, Great Tit, Blue Tit, Robin, Chaffinch, Hawfinch, Magpie, Jay, Short-toed Treecreeper, Wren, Chiffchaf, Collared Dove, House Sparrow
