A Flora and Fauna of Symi

A personal guide to the wildlife of Symi and beyond

This winter there are no shortages of robins on Symi and unusually there are two or three in my locality of the old village. They issue short bursts of song that are typical of their winter territorial call. Interestingly enough birders on Crete and Rhodes have noticed an increase in winter robins and these birds will migrate south when conditions in their breeding ground become difficult through bad weather. No doubt they will return in the spring to their breeding grounds.
