Rock Sparrow colony found near Athens!

During his search for Rosy Starlings that were recently seen near Spata, our good friend and expert birdwatcher Panagiotis Latsoudis found a small colony of Rock Sparrows near the town of Markopoulo, very close to Athens International Airport! The birds were found in an abandoned stone quarry, and this is really good news for such a hard to see species!
