Migrants: Smaller Birds



A first for me on Symi. A winchat, in fact lots of them over Noulia working the bare ground for insects.







Another first; a willow warbler.

Notice the large supercilium (stripe) over the eye and the lack of a white ring around the eye. Also pale legs. These features separate this bird from its cousin, chiffchaff.










And finally my favourite, a spotted flycatcher.
