Winter visitors in Hymettus Mt., Athens

A great sunny day, after 4 days of continious rain, was ideal for birdwatching in Hymettus Mt., in Athens. Close to the Monastery of Kesariani, lots of birds singing and flying from one tree to another. My first winter records for Sombre Tits and Sparrowhawk, Goldcrests, also some more Hawfinches.

The complete bird list for Saturday November 26th, 2005 is the following:

Sparrowhawk, Kestrel, Robin, Blackbird, Goldcrest, Chiffchaff, Great Tit, Sombre Tit, Short-toed Treecreeper, Jay, House Sparrow, Chaffinch, Hawfinch, Magpie, Cirl Bunting
