Birdwatching in Athens: Spring migration update


One day is left for April to come and spring migrants are already building up their numbers. Nightingales are now common in Vravrona, along with Reed, Great Reed and Sedge Warblers. The Yellow-browed Warbler is stil there(!), while Woodchat Shrikes are becoming frequent sights.

Loutsa Lagoon was also very productive. Black-winged Stilts, Little Stints, Ruffs, Marsh Sandpipers and a Glossy Ibis were among the newest arrivals.
