Sylvia atricapilla (Μαυροσκούφης) is not at all a rarity but it’s always a challenge to photograph this Warbler, especially the female which is one of my favorite ones ! It must be no more than 2 times i managed more than decent photos of this usually well hidden in the dense foliage warbler .

3 months ago i had my first observation of a 1CY Rissa tridactyla (Τριδάχτυλος Γλάρος). It was found among several Black Headed Gulls. When we approached to assure that it was a Kittiwake and not another Black Headed Gull we were very lucky that while all the Gulls took off, only the Kittiwake landed again, on exactly the same place, after no more than 1 minute. So we enjoyed a great session with many many photos !

Porzana pusilla is a beautiful – as all Crakes are – but very secretive bird. Usually moves in the dense reeds playing hide and seek with a birdwatcher.

If staying silent and motionless even in a semi hidden position and if having some patience she could appear in the open for a while.

Here is a – most probably – 1cy Citrine Wagtail (Κιτροσουσουράδα), my first observation of this species. It was observed the end of September at the urban stream of Pikrodafni (also 1st observation for this wetland). It seems that the bird didn’t stay a long there.
