This is the best period of spring migration and every day brings new birds to Athens. Today, a Great Snipe was seen along with several Common Snipes, Wood Sandpipers and a Ruff in a flooded vineyard, very close to the wetland of Vravrona. Red-throated Pipits were also present, while Squacco Herons were fishing at the estuary of Erasinos river. Very close to the estuary, a Little Crake was foraging in the flooded banks of the river.
|Squacco Herons are very common in sprin|
|Little Crake is regular and widespread in spring, albeit very hard to see (if someone is not patient enough)|
|Red-throated Pipits are usually seen in the ground, rarely perching on wires|
