Great Surprise from a "Pygmy" Visitor

Pygmy Cormorants have become quite common sights in Northern Greece. However, observations in southern Greece are very rare and irregular. One of those "stranglers" however, has chosen the Tritsis Environmental Awareness Park, which is situated north of Athens, to spend some time. Seen alone or among the small flock of Cormorants that is also wintering there, the bird is rather wary and will keep itself concealed, being out in the open only when resting on an islet found in the largest of the lakes of the Park. Let's hope that this is just the beginning and more birds will appear in the future!
