Crag Martins

I spent the day in Rodos old town yesterday, during which I walked around the old fortifications between the two walls. Lots of crag martins nesting in the gaps of the walls, twisting and turning in flight above the grass looking for insects. Well worth a stroll around. I am not aware of them breeding on Symi, but they may well do. I am more used to seeing them on Symi during the winter months. More info on this bird can be found here.
