Meteora in spring, 2013

The southest breeding site of Egyptian Vultures, Meteora rocks and Antichasia Mts, has many more to offer. Rollers are very common, along with Black Kites, while Semi-collared Flycatchers are very hard to miss if you visit the riparian forest of Mourgani River, close to the village of Gavros. Black Storks are also very common, and there are also Lesser Spotted Eagles, Lesser Kestrels, Black-headed Buntings and Lesser Grey Shrikes.

The once common Egyptian Vulture has become very rare, less than 20 pairs are still nesting in Greece
