Some impressive species around Athens

May is almost gone. Migration was slow this year, but even at the end of May, Athens area provides some interesting species, hard to see in many places of Europe.
Most important, we have confirmed another breeding site, at Rafina, of Great Spotted Cuckoo. We saw the parents in March, and two days ago, a young bird was in the area!
