The morning of the 26th December 2005, I decided to go birding up in Hymettus Mt., Athens. The weather was OK, pretty cold (5-8 degrees Celcius), but nice and sunny. Nothing special, all typical winter species that were expected to be seen. Only at the end of the trip, a Sparrowhawk was observed perching on top of a cypress tree.
The bird list for Monday 26th December 2005 is the following.
Common Buzzard (1), Sparrowhawk (1), Collared Dove, Wren, Blackbird, Chiffchaff, Blackcap, Robin, Sombre Tit, Great Tit, Jay, House Sparrow, Chaffinch, Siskin
