Excursion to Mt Parnassos

Sunday we went with Pavlos Andriopoulos to the Mt Parnassos area, which proved to be a very interesting and varied place for birding.
All in all we saw 45 different species, among which figured the Short-toed Eagle, Kestrel, Black Woodpecker, Rufous-tailed Rock-trush, Northern Wheatear, Tawny Pipit, Wood Lark, Sombre Tit, Red-backed Shrike, Woodchat Shrike, Cirl Bunting, Rock Bunting, Ortolan Bunting, and Alpine Cough.
