Spring alive! (even if it's still February)

The first wave of migrants has already reached Greece! Today, 40 House Martins were flying overhead Vravrona wetland, while single Hoopoes have been seen in Athens, along with solitary Swallows! 

House Martins are well known for being the first to arrive, but this time they broke all the records; the first was seen before the 10th of February! Hoopoes were also very early, while the Swallow record is also very unique! It's going to be a very "hot" spring...
