Summer in Athens

This year unfortunately I had to spend most of the summer in Athens. Even though time was limited, I did try to get some photos. The heat and the strong sunlight did not help much but I did manage to get some decent pictures. Apart from the well known locations such as mount Hymettus and many of the city parks, there are many other spots in the outskirts of the city in which you can take photos of some bird species that breed in the area. This Hoopoe is a good example.

Another interesting finding was a Stonechat that I found at Schinias wetland which was ringed! Unfortunately even though the bird was pretty close, the ring cannot be read…
