Red-throated Pipits Anthus cervinus - Κοκκινοκελάδα, are the least common of the pipits seen regularly, yet they can be sometimes very easily seen during spring migration. This one literally came to me; I was standing in front of a flooded field full of swallows when this red fellow landed just a few meters away. Posed for a few seconds then gone as fast as it came....This and many more species can be seen in great numbers in the flooded plain of Spata, which has become 2011's hot spot, thanks to the heavy rains that created temporary wetlands.
And here's is another one from Spyros, from the same area!
