24 April - two White-throated Robins!

Now two male White-throated Robins at the Petrified Forest. A new Baillon's Crake at the Kalloni Saltpans and yesterday's two Spur-winged Plovers from Polichnitos pans appear in the Kalloni area today.

Sorry about the lack of photos but problems with the internet here with uploading photos and files!

Petrified Forest
Now believed to be two males in the park around the same area and seen throughout the day - morning better than evenings though. again at the Petrified Forest Park showed throughout the morning and 

The park is open but i would suggest you view from the road. This will avoid disturbing the bird by going in to the park.

Park at the end of road by centre as normal. Walk back up the road and at c.200m look right in to park and for square concrete building with some tall, thin cyprus firs by it. The robin was feeding on the ground below these firs and bushes either side and further to the right around the bushes by the covered seating (bandstand).
