A walk up the hills W of Amopi Karpathos can deliver some surprising birds.

Added by Anders Larsson

Description

The southern part of Karpathos is not a generally good for birding,  in Amopi snorkeling is rather the quality. Despite this, a walk up the hills can be rewarded with Sardinian Warbler , Woodchat Shrike , Crested Lark , Black-eared Wheatear and Chukar. And from the highest spot there is a great view over the bay. When in Amopi it can also be worth looking for Scopoli's Shearwater.
