Imittos Mt (Athens)

During a nice sunny day at Imittos Mt (Athens), a short 1-hour hike gave us 20 species, including Chukar (20), Blue Rock Thrush (5), Rock Nuthatch (1), Subalpine Warbler (3), Sombre Tit (2), Rock Bunting (1), Cirl Bunting (3). It seems that the important summer migrants have not arrived yet
