    This looks like a Wall Creeper (Dutch: Rotskruiper). A very rare bird, normally living high in the mountains, in winter sometimes lower. Then more white on the breast.

    Better: on the throat (in stead of ‘breast’)

    I can confirm this is a ‘rotskruiper’ (Tichodroma muraria). Two years ago I have also seen one near the harbour of Dionysiou, so it seems to be a regular visitor there.

    The latin name: Tichodroma muraria.
