We have recently come back from a weeks family holiday on Zakynthos (Zante), this definitely was not a birding holiday, plenty of sun, sea, food and the odd alcoholic beverage!!

We stayed pretty close to our villa near Beloussi with walks down to the beach side tavernas, so the only birds were what we saw as we mooched about. These were predominantly Swallows, House Sparrow, Goldfinch, Greenfinch and Collared Dove, with the odd House Martin and Swift making an appearance.

The swallows though were a delight, skimming our pool and perching in our veranda.

Tina and myself had a sight seeing drive around the island on the Thursday and we bumped into this little chap,
followed by a Woodchat Shrike a bit later on.
A few Yellow-legged Gulls were seen and while we were driving a Honey Buzzard flew by but we couldn't stop to get a better view.

On our last day this chap paid a visit to the villa,
