Winter around Athens

Happy new year to everybody!

During the last week of 2007, I had some time to visit a few small wetlands around Athens. I realized that the number of ducks remains quite low, almost close to last year's numbers.

A short half-day trip to Schinias National Park ended up with the following highlights:

Mallard (70), Pintail (6), Shoveler (20), Marsh Harrier (4, +1 male), Common Buzzard, Snipe, Common Sandpiper.

During my previous visit in that wetland , on December 20th, I also saw a Rock Bunting!

During the next days, I will posts some pics from these trips.
