Messolonghi Lagoon (Sterea Hellas)


This immature Dalmatian Pelican is one of the group of c.10 birds that stayed in the lagoon for the summer. The yellow ring in its right foot indicates that it was raised as chick in the Amvrakikos Gulf colony. It's very interesting to see whether these immatures will stay in Messolonghi to nest when they become adults.
