It takes a Crane....

Cranes are anything but common sights in Greece. Although a few major wetlands (e.g. Kerkini, Messolonghi) host every year at least a couple of birds in winter, the species is a very scarce passage migrant and winter visitor. This year, a juv bird chose Asopos estuary in northern Attica to spend a few weeks, being the major attraction for many birdwatchers of the area.
