Schinias National Park (Athens) at the peak of migration


5 Little Egrets, very close to the main road


This Marsh Harrier was suddenly flying towards me!



A nice Wood Sandpiper, waiting for what?



It is very hard to spot a Purple Heron between the reeds



It has been a whole year since I've seen this Little Owl. I was happy to see it again, in the same spot at the roof of this old building.
