Decided to visit Perivolia fields this evening to see what was around. No rarities as with the Steppe Grey Shrike earlier this year although there was a male Red-backed Shrike perched on the same bush I had seen it on. In the fields towards the village the sound of singing Calandra Lark was dominant. I saw at least eight either in display flight or chasing over the potato plants but there must have been more in among the crops. I was surprised to also hear a Black-headed Bunting and found a male singing from the top of an artichoke seed head. Not a usual site for them so am guessing it could be passing through.

There were many Barn Swallow as well as at least 12 Black-headed Wagtail and three Whinchat. As I returned to the car twenty European Bee-eater passed overhead.
