Spent five hours at Cape Greco watching for raptors this morning but the windy conditions meant that apart from the four resident Common Kestrels, the only bird of prey I saw was a European Hobby that was being almost blown southwards over the sea. A Little Egret struggled along the coast and once the wind dropped slightly a few Sand Martin, Red-rumped Swallow and Barn Swallow passed over.

On the way home I passed by the Agia Napa Football fields where there were four Lesser Grey Shrike, six Red-backed Shrike, a couple of Whinchat, twelve Yellow Wagtail, a Spotted Flycatcher and a Cattle Egret.
