Trip Diary

Saturday 27th March 2004 Overcast and wet

We all met at Terminal 4 and checked in. We had a quiet flight with 'brunch' and left Athens at 2.30. We drove on motorway past Eleuvsis and the industrial areas, Salamis and out to the Corinth canal for our first stop, where coffees and teas and sticky buns were the order of the day with Greek rice pudding and Kataifi (Greek sweet), being popular as well as chocolate cake. We had a brief second stop at Megalopolis but it was 8.15 before we arrived in Pylos. We had passed through the mountains and also crowds gathered to see the Olympic Torch pass by. We had an excellent dinner and fell into bed.

Sunday 28th March 2004 Overcast

We left after a very good breakfast for Methoni and explored the castle. We found Black Redstart, Wheatear and Stone Curlew as well as Kestrel and Yellow-legged Gull. We found Cerinthe major Honeywort and Virginia Stock all over the castle as well as Wild Leek. We stopped briefly at the hotel and then went on to Gialova lagoon. Here, we were met by Andreas Bonetti, who had been working at the lagoon for 8 years. We saw Crested Lark, Rüppell's Warbler, Blackcap as well as heard Curlews and Purple Herons coming in on migration. The ducks were nervous but we saw Pintail, Garganey and Red-crested Pochard as well as Great White Egret and Little Egrets. We had lunch at Gialova by the sea at a lovely taverna and spent the rest of the afternoon in a valley leading to a waterfall looking at flowers and birds. We saw Cyclamen, Muscari, Bellevalia as well as Orlaya grandiflora, and 7 species of orchid. Gareth gave us a slide show to illustrate our proposed tour, before we had dinner in the hotel and caught up with the checklist.

Monday March 29th 2004 Overcast clearing to sunny.

We left at 9.00 and passed Kalamata and out onto the Outer Mani we began to climb with wonderful views down to the coast. At 11.00 at Kardamili we walked up to the old town, had great views of Rock Nuthatch and explored the Ag. Sofia Gorge. The path was steady and there were lots of flowers to interest us. At 12.30 we turned back having seen most of the views and we drove down to the sea at Lela's Taverna for lunch. By now it was overcast again but we ate outside despite a log fire inside and as we ordered drinks, a flock of 2000 Levant Shearwaters were found on the flat sea. We had the usual light ie.large lunch of stuffed vegetables and drove further south and stopped at the Chapel of the Metamorphosis to birdwatch and botanise as well as look at the chapel. Further along the road we stopped to botanise along the road and found Pink Hawkweed and Barbary Nut or Half day Iris Gynandiris siysyrichium, as well as several new kinds of pea. Rock Nuthatch called and we found Cirl Bunting and Southern Festoon and Clouded Yellow. As we arrived in Porto Vitilo the wind had risen and rain threatened. We admired the different designs of room and had a rest before meeting to hold a checklist and had dinner at the Black Pirate's restaurant. We ate fish soup and swordfish steaks and apple with cinnamon and honey and retired replete. The wind was rising and rain threatened.

Tuesday 30th March 2004 Rain and wind

We awoke in the night to rain and wind. We breakfasted at 8.00 on a magnificent spread and we had a choice of the Maniot breakfast or the more usual cereals fruit, croissant and toast. We set of at 9.00 in light rain to explore Upper Vitilo and then part of the group walked down to the monastery. Unfortunately the heavens opened and we had thunder and lightening and the vegetation was wet so we were soon soaked. However we claimed to have enjoyed the experience. At the Moni Dokoulou the church was covered in frescos, which were depicting stories from the Bible. In the bay below we could see a large flock of Little Egrets and about 200 Garganey. We returned to the hotel to dry, warm up and have coffee. Setting off again we drove to Pirgos Dirou and took the boat trip in the caves, which are covered in stalagtites and stalagmites. The museum covering the Neolithic period was very interesting and we were startled to discover an earthquake had ended the original occupation of the caves. Lunch was taken at a Taverna in the centre of Areopolis and we enjoyed the typical Greek experience of looking at all the dishes in the Taverna before placiing our orders. It was cold and windy as we set off to explore old Aeropolis town and the outside of the churches and we returned to the hotel at 3.30. The wind had dropped as we set off to the beach to explore Vitilo Bay and we found Wheatear, Common Sandpiper, Yellow Wagtail, Grey Herons, Purple Herons and Little Egrets as well as residents like Fan-tailed Warbler. After the log at 7.00 we went back to the Black Pirates for another excellent meal and we cut the portions by having starters, salads and puddings, and retired to sleep. The weather was improving again.

Weds 31st March 2004 Overcast and cold

We had an early morning walk at 7.30 but it was cold and windy so there were few migrants apart from Swallows. After another excellent breakfast we set off through Areopolis towards Cape Teneron (Matapan). We stopped at Kita to explore our first tower village and Gareth soon had us invited into a home which was being restored. The lady's faith in humanity and her hospitality was an example to us all. We stopped for coffee at Gerolimenas bay and saw Blue Rock Thrush and heard Rock Nuthatch. We arrived at Cape Teneron in a strong wind and were soon watching Subalpine Warblers, Montagu's Harriers and Short-toed Eagles as well as Yellow Wagtails, all fresh in off the sea. We lunched at Porto Kagio and avoided a shower. Vathia was our next stop and we walked around the town exploring the alleyways and looking at the towers yet to be restored. The wind meant we saw little in the way of birds. We returned to Piros Dirou and bought postcards and pots and some went birdwatching along the coast back at Vitilo Bay, and found many new migrants including Blackcaps, Whinchat and Squacco Herons, which had just arrived. The poor weather was paying dividends. Gareth showed some pictures via his laptop to illustrate the Mani, before we went out to dinner at Areopolis, where we had an ever-changing range of small dishes, which were all delicious.

Thursday 1st April 2004 Overcast, windy wet and cold.

We set off at 7.15 in a strong wind but found few migrant and the rain was coming so we returned for an early breakfast. By the time we left at 9.00 it was raining steadily, but Gareth assured us it would improve. We drove over the hill to Gythion and the area was dry and we believed him but the weather kept catching us up and we picked up Nikos at the Evrotas delta information centre and set off to the river and the sand dunes. We found 1000's of hirundines, Garganey and Green Sandpiper at the river as well as Marsh Harriers, but then the rain came again and we had to abandon the dune visit. At Momenvasia, we arrived for lunch the rain caught up with us, but cleared by the time we came to explore the museum and the town. We found Rock Campanula, Giant Fennel, Henbane and Squirting Cucumber as well as Blue Rock Thrush, Black-eared Wheatear and Linnets amongst the stones. On our return some walked the last kilometre to bird watch Blackcaps everywhere again, but the rain returned. We held the log and Gareth's computer enhanced our tour again. We had another good meal of fish and salads at Limenas and enjoyed the log fire, before returning for more nightcaps.

Friday 2nd April 2004 Cloudy and cool

We left on time after picking up a picnic from the Black Pirates and set off north via Githion to Sparta .We spent the morning walking down through the flowers and seeing very good views of Rock Nuthatch, as well as absorbing the history of ancient Mystra with its churches, public buildings and many narrow roadways. We had our picnic at the washing place in the Mystras Gorge and then walked in the Parori Gorge where we found more orchids and spring bulbs and saw flocks of Jackdaws and yet more blackcaps moving through. We heard Wren but it proved elusive for many of us. Our final stop was at the Museum of Olive Oil where we enjoyed some excellent coffees, we could even see yet more Blackcaps in the garden and we enjoyed this modern museum, which explained the history and wealth associated with Olive Oil. At our hotel Gareth organised a souvenir shopping trip and food tasting to take home samples of all the new food we had tried. We had another traditional dinner and some took coffees in the town.

Saturday April 3rd 2004 Sunny, cool wind

Left at 9.00 and crossed over the mountains down to Nafplion. We found lots of birds feeding up along the saltflats with Grey Heron, Mediterranean Gull, Curlew, Glossy Ibis and 20+Black-winged Stilts. We had coffees at Nafplion and took a short walk around the old town. Fortified we continued on to Mycenae and looked at the citadel where we also found Black-eared Wheatear and Rock Nuthatch as well as plenty of flowers. The Beehive tomb, the Treasury of Atreus, was very impressive. Lunch was taken in a very large Restaurant at Mycenae, but the food was good despite the size and we left soon after 3 and arrived back at the airport at 5.15. We had a slight delay due to luggage problems but we arrived in London safely and said our fond goodbyes. It was rated a good tour despite the weather.
