Birdwatching in Athens: Great Spotted Cuckoo arrivals!

Athens has become the most reliable area to look for the Great Spotted Cuckoo as several breeding pairs have been recorded across the Prefecture. This week, an adult was seen close to Loutsa Lagoon, in a site with numerous Magpies, the favorite host of this cuckoo.
