and once again - as I'm a man of (bird) missions - try Birds of Europe mission, we are recruiting here: https://www.projectnoah.org/missions/239...

Not 100% sure here... but if I suppose that the size of the bird is somewhere in the range of sparrow, I would think of juvenile Linnet (Carduelis cannabina). Once again, when increasing a light in shadows a bit, there is some buff tinge on chest, while the belly becomes very light in colour, almost off-white. Legs look dark pink, and there is rusty coloured supercilium...

In that link to a blog, above, there is a pic of young female linnet, quite similar...

By the way - this would also be a nice addition in Birds of Europe mission: https://www.projectnoah.org/missions/239...

To me, it looks like Grey wagtail, juvenile - when you increase the light on the pic, you can clearly see buff-rose coloured chest, grey coat and yellowish-orange vent. I just can't say for the colour of legs - grey would have pale pink legs, while Yellow wagtail juvenile would have them black (its coat would also be more brown). I vote for Grey (M. cinerea).

Hey Claudio Marques - this one, and your recent series of bird spottings from Portugal would be a great addition to "Birds of Europe" mission, too. You can check the mission here: https://www.projectnoah.org/missions/239...

I really don't think this is Blyth's - my first idea was Garden warbler (Sylvia borin). Moreover, Greece is a way-off for Blyth's, as far as I know - I found no record in Greece for Blyth's sightings..

Hey Karen - great spotting and lovely creature! This spotting (and other similar spottings from your collection) would be a great addition to the mission "African Antelopes in the Wild" (here is the link: https://www.projectnoah.org/missions/122...) - and I would like to invite you to check it out.
