Current in Crete, Greece

In the last week on Crete
Isabelline Wheatear, Northern Wheatear, Black-eared Wheatear, Subalpine Warbler, Barn Swallow, Red-rumped Swallow, House Martin, Swift, Hoopoe and a single Great Spotted Cuckoo.

A couple of days ago a ragged Lesser Spotted Eagle, Marsh Harrier.

Waders are also to be seen 30 plus Little Ringed Plover in two separate fields and a few on the beaches, Green Sandpiper

Over the last couple of weeks we have seen several hundred Common Buzzard and a few Steppe Buzzard pass by.

All these were spotted along the north west coast.
