Ag Nik in the snow!

We thought all of you in the UK would like to see that we suffer snow here as well!  24hrs before this was taken we were sweltering in shorts & T shirts just before the storm hit.  Locals say they can’t remember anything like it, and it certainly caused some damage to the town as well as the marina.  We’re pretty sheltered here, but buildings in the yard were smashed up, our pontoon broken in 2 and quite a few boats snapped mooring lines.  Apart from a sleepless night we had no problems (so far!), and the temperature has shot back to the high teens again today, so no complaints from us.



Are there any ornithologists out there reading this?  We went for a walk the other day and spotted a few large vultures soaring overhead.  Someone said they might be Lammergeiers, which are known in Crete – can anyone confirm this?
