Trip to Evros Delta (6-7 Feb.2013) Part I: Raptors

Early February in Evros is just fantastic. Waterfowl are still there in numbers of many thousands, and all the raptors of the area are visiting the area, from Merlins to White-tailed Eagles.

Hen harriers are always seen flying low in open areas

Merlins are regular winter visitors in the grasslands. 

The long-legged Buzzard is common resident in the hills surrounding the Delta

More than 70 Marsh Harriers can be seen in a single day in winter...

Great Spotted Eagles are the commonest of the large raptors, seven were seen in  a small area
