At Last!

After many years of unsuccessful attempts to find and take pictures of a Wallcreeper (Tichodroma muraria), my quest was completed during the last days of the year just completed, in a place just outside the city of Kastoria.

Just outside the city and in the middle a pretty big slope, inside a natural cave there is a small church that can be reached using a steep path. I had the info that at least one Wallcreeper overwinters in those cliffs.

Just one day before the end of 2015 I got there and after several hours of waiting, my luck changed. I had the opportunity to see up close and for the first time this special and difficult to observe bird species. In addition the bird gave me several good photographic moments. The pictures here are just a small sample!

Don’t forget that by clicking on the pictures you can see them in a larger/sharper version with their Exif Data.
