Birdwatching in Athens: Autumn migration update

Red-breasted Flycatchers have arrived in Athens! As usual, the first birds are seen before the 10th of September and the species is present till the end of the month. Spotted Flycatchers are abundant, as are Willow Warblers and Red-backed Shrikes.

Subalpine Warblers are still on the move while Whitethroat and Garden Warbler numbers have increased. A few Collared and Pied Flycatchers are also seen. Redstarts are becoming more regular and we're waiting for the odd Bluethroat to be found.
