Breaking News! Blue-cheeked Bee-eater in the Peloponnese!

Blue-cheeked Bee-eaters are rare vagrants, with most of the birds seen in Crete and Greek islands adjacent to Turkey. Mainland records are extremely rare (if any). Therefore, the bird that was seen on the 25th of March near the marshes of Nea Kios, close to the town of Nafplio, attracted any available birdwatcher around! The bird is quite tame, but can be seen only early in the morning or in the afternoon, as it seems to prefer a particular patch for roosting. Let's hope that it will stay for a few more days, so that every visiting birdwatcher can see it!
