The 4th Bird Race is over! Our team managed to get 97 species, from 6:30 am to 6pm, until we got arrested by secret police (Greece's CIA) because we were birdwatching in front of an important national secrets agency base! So we could not be at the final point of the race on time!

Overall, the race was a lot of fun. Only in Schinias National Park we saw 74 species (new record, since last year we saw 65 species in that location).
Highlights:
Little Owl: 3 @ Schinias
Glossy Ibis: 17 @ Schinias
Ferruginous Ducks: 10 @ Schinias
Moustached Warbler: 1 @ Schinias
Red-crested Pochard: 1 @ Schinias
Woodchat Shrike: 1 @ Schinias
Cory's Shearwater: 1 @ Rafina's Port
Long-legged Buzzard: 1 @ Imittos Mt
Sombre Tit: 1 @ Imittos Mt
