Birdwatching in Athens: Summer warblers of Vravrona

The reedbeds and the tamarisk "jungle" of the Vravrona wetland hold significant populations of Reed and Eastern Olivaceous Warblers. Both species, of course, are very difficult to see out in the open but late July is usually a good period for photographing them as many juveniles are around and the adults are starting to build up fat for their upcoming migration to Africa, being less shy.
Olivaceous Warblers prefer trees but they can also be seen in reedbeds

Reed Warbler is a very common breeder of Vravrona,
staying always inside the dense reedbed of Erasinos river
