Colourful Characters

A selection of the more colourful bird life I managed to image.

A group of 5 Bee-eaters entertained me for ages at Acheleia reedbeds, the only time I saw these wonderful birds during the whole trip. Rollers, on the other hand, were quite regular sightings, both in the farmland around the villa and on the wires around Loukaides chicken farm; exactly as predicted by Dave Gosney's "Finding Birds..."  (perhaps he pays the farmer).
As for the Cockatiel, well, this is one of a pair that were enjoying their freedom at Goudi, just down the road from where we stayed.

It does what it says on the tin
