7th May 2005 - 2nd Meeting
As planned the second meeting was held at Agia Reservoir starting at 12.30 near the pumping station. There were close sightings to enjoy of Squocco Heron, Little Bittern and Black-winged Stilt. Other species seen included Little Egret, Little Crake and Garganey. A Bee-eater was reported.
Black-winged Stilt
Ten people attended the field meeting with another two joining for an expected lunch. Unfortunately the Taverna turned out to be a Cafe, so lunch turned into toasted sandwiches!
9th May
We were returning to the UK next day so a sighting of Griffon Vultures from our balcony was a great send off.
