Fall migration has begun

Wood Sandpipers are among the earliest fall migrants. The first birds are seen as early as late June, and this flock of c.30 birds was resting in Aigio Lagoon, a small but very important brackish wetland in northern Peloponesse. Other birds seen include three Mediterannean Gulls, Black-winged Stilts, Common and Little Terns as well as Kentish Plovers.
