Summer in the city - Καλοκαιρινή βόλτα στον Υμηττό
Another birding day around the monastery. Mt Hymettus is a great place, even for the warmest summer days. The highlights of the day were a Sparrowhawk, a Chukar just beside the road, Goldcrests and Firecrests, 2 Sombre Tits, several Cirl Bunting singing from the top of the cypress trees, a Rock Bunting. All 3 kinds of Swifts (Common, Pallid, Alpine), House Martins and Swallows were flying around as well.
