Cirl Bunting spot, Aegean

We call it the “Cirl Bunting” spot because we saw one there last year and because we don't know the local name for it. It's about ten minutes' drive from the cottage, and is a wonderful place, alive with birds in a magical coastal setting. Shrikes and buntings galore, Turtle Doves and tantalising scrub warblers. 
A highlight for me were the Rufous Bushchats (or Bush Robins if you prefer), tail-flickingly active and full of character.
