Study: Glass Buildings a Top Cause of Human-Related Death Among Birds in Greece

Glass buildings and other transparent structures are the most common human-related cause of death in Greece among birds, which are unable to recognise them as an obstacle and smash into them at high speed. The conclusion was presented in a recent book on the topic written by biologist and member of the Greek Ornithological Society Dimitris Bousbouras, who also outlined prevention methods and called for legislation to ensure they are adopted.

First Covid-19 vaccinations took place on Kef earlier today, in two days around 180 people should have been vaccinated. Still quite a few to go...

Kef police are reporting an big increase in the number of scam phone calls attempting to get people to divulge their personal details, such as bank a/c numbers.

Boris Johnson under fire after being spotted cycling in park seven miles from Downing Street
Trip sends ‘Do as I say, not as I do’ message, says Labour MP

Boris Johnson is coming under fire after being spotted cycling in a park seven miles from Downing Street this weekend.

Government lockdown guidance for England states that people may leave their homes to exercise once a day, but tells them they “should not travel outside your local area” to do so.

Mr Johnson’s ride sparked anger on social media, with one Twitter user describing the prime minister as a “hypocrite” and another saying it appeared that “lockdown is just for the little people”.

But Downing Street insisted he was exercising within the lockdown rules, and health secretary Matt Hancock said it was permissible to walk or ride as much as seven miles away from your home.
