As we are so closely linked to Antikythira, thought this may be of interest.

Also be aware that if you are holidaying or living on the island you could get arrested for plant and flower picking see the following link......

17th June 2013 

Still working hard to get the new look site up and running , a few glitches to sort out but we are getting there. Hope you like the new format.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Some background images went onto the wrong pages but they should be fixed in the next few days and text that is now unreadable because of the new easy on the eye colour scheme will also be rectified soon.

Don't forget we will return with up to date blog news in the autumn......

June 2013      PLEASE NOTE.......................                                     

We are going to take some time out.

Over the coming weeks we are going to revamp the website and try to give it a whole new look. 

We are also going to have a holiday and have a house sitter to look after the place while we are away. We know they will enjoy the scenery and the birding.

Our plan is to visit some places we have not been before, in the Peleponnese and mainland Greece

The Balkan countries.....Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Slovenia. Checking out the birding in these countries especially in Albania where there is little info. we will put a trip report and birding locations with information about these areas when we return.

When we have internet we will put some of our finds onto our Facebook pages which you can find in the box above this one.

The website will return for the autumn migration, but our friends in Crete will add their sightings and photos to Facebook so please have a look there.Any questions about Crete and Birding will get answered on there, if not by us then our Cretan friends 

We hope you will return and join us later this year 

Thanks

Colin and Sue
