Fabulous Finikas Finsch's finale

Today we took the dog for a 10 mile hike over the hills near Nata, returning via Finikas village and the Asprokremmos Dam for a last look at our local Finsch's wheatears. On the walk we came across lots of serins, several chukar, a few Sardinian warblers and a small flock of about 10 woodlarks, but as expected most of the bird action was around the abandoned village, where we found an adult blue rock thrush, two Finsch's wheatears, several black redstarts and a couple of Chiffchaffs of the race brevirostris, one of which at last allowed me to grab a photograph to put with the sound recording  I made on Sunday.
