Very nice Warblers Tom, especially the black and white :)
There are different than the spices you can find here

Here is a male European serin and a male cirl bunting, same place and setup

Your sulfurous Serin looks more like what we call a Finch here. It has the same yellow as our Goldfinch but different markings. I enjoy your Greek birds, keep 'em coming!

Ardeola Ralloides looks like the Green Heron found in these parts. The white wings are beautiful.

Went back to the nest of the Kingfishers.
The parents are feeding the chicks now and looking at the fish they are going fast. :)

Nicely captured Kingfisher Chris.
Did you use some flash to help with shutter speed etc?

I love the way you've caught the Warbler in flight Tom.
That middle picture conveys the energy & burst of speed that was happening in front of you so well.
I'm not sure I've ever seen one of these (or if they're common in the UK)

Thanks Colin, Nasos

The Kingfishers have their nest in a small local Parc in Amsterdam.  ;D
