Highlights

  • The magical Lake Kerkini and its surroundings with a bird list of over 300 species (!) is located only an hour drive from Thessaloniki airport. Watch pelicans, egrets and herons and spot bee-eaters everywhere. Listen to the Nightingale, Golden Oriole and Great Reed Warbler, Penduline Tit and Black Kite.
  • Visit Dadia Forest, the best site in Europe for raptors, where 36 out of Europe’s 39 raptor species have been recorded and 20 breed. Watch Black, Griffon and Egyptian Vultures, Golden, Lesser Spotted, Short-toed and Booted Eagles, Common and Honey Buzzards, Lanner, Peregrine Hobby and Red-footed Falcon and both Sparrowhawks.
  • Discover the huge Evros Delta, on the border with Turkey. Due to its easterly position it offers you the chance to see real rarities, such as Greater Sand, Sociable and even Caspian Plovers.

Check out the trip report for Kerkini Lake on the 10.000 Birds blog and the bird list of that trip.
