The first Black Redstarts!| Οι πρώτοι Καρβουνιάρηδες!

Για μένα- και για τον καθένα δηλαδή..- τα πρώτα Σπιτοχελίδονα σηματοδοτούν την έλευση της Άνοιξης. Η άλλη αγωνία της χρονιάς είναι πότε θα δω τους πρώτους Καρβουνιάρηδες, για την έλευση του… Χειμώνα. Σήμερα 25/10 μετά από τέσσερεις μέρες γεμάτες βροχή (21-24), το πρώτο πράγμα του είδα όταν βγήκα στην αυλή (χωρίς ομπρέλα) ήταν τουλάχιστον 4 Καρβουνιάρηδες να κυνηγιούνται στις σκεπές.

Καλό Χειμώνα!

For me- and for everyone else…- the first Martins are the sign that Spring is approaching. The other agony of the year is to see the first Black Redstarts as a sigh of the approaching… Winter. Today (25/10), after four full days of good rain (21-24), the first thing I saw while coming out in the yard (without an umbrella) were at least 4 Black Redstarts chasing each other on the roofs.

Have a nice Winter!

    Kalimera Eleni! Thank you for the mails. A very good list (and for us maybe good to try to learn some Greek and English bird names…no promises though) and beautiful pics of the beautiful redstarts. In the west of the Nethelands they are quite rare, so we rarely see them! What a different sight the island must have already after all that rain. Cheers, Alex

    The Black Redstars are very numerous here, in late Autumn, and decline as winter approaches. The bird of the village in winter… more visible than the Robin. Thank you for the comment Alex!
