In reality it is exactly the opposite, a sort of purpose in life".

The weather in January is very wintry, storms, thunderstorms, heavy rains, everything is there. Not exactly an invitation for migratory birds. So it is not surprising that very few reports / sightings are made.

Also with us in the garden only the sparrows are active and already on the expansion of the nests. A few finches, blood-hangings and sledge, a house red-tail, that's it. In the Anarita area, the stone owl can already be seen around the incubators and, as always, from November, the rock-stone-slingiser is native to the Plateu.

The number of flamingos in the Akrotiri Salt Lake has risen to about 12,500 birds (Colin Richardson) between the holidays. As soon as the weather plays along I will also go to the salt lake.
