Black Headed Buntings & Spanish Sparrows Lesvos

12th May 2011
Early one morning we travelled over to the far west of the Island to Sigri and Faneromeni area. Birds were in surprisingly short supply but we came across a blaze of colour and noise - a mixed flock of about 150 Black Headed Buntings and Spanish Sparrows were feeding in a roadside field. There is a plant which resembles a giant Fennell which grows up to 8 feet tall and the Black Headed Buntings seemed to like perching on it.
