Birdwatching in Athens: Wintering Wrynecks at Vravrona Wetland!

The Wryneck is a fairly common passage migrant and summer visitor, even though its secretive habits make it very difficult to be seen. It is also a very rare winter visitor, its observation being much more hard as it very rarely calls during the winter.

Therefore, I was really surprised to find not just one but three Wrynecks calling from a stand of large bushes at the wetland of Vravrona!

The birds never showed up in the open...

The olive trees seem to have attracted the birds as they are full of delicious fruits
