Birdwatching in Greece: Athens' winter visitors overview (Part I)

Winter is not a "closed" season for birdwatching in Athens and the surroundings. Numerous birds from the north arrive, to take advantage of the usually mild climate (very few, if any, snowfalls and temperatures rarely below 0 degrees Celcius).

 The White Wagtail is a very common sight in the lowlands, from city parks to ploughed fields and wetlands.

Water Pipits are always found in wetlands, like Oropos Lagoon.



The Blue Tit is a regular winter visitor of the lowlands, in fluctuating numbers. This is a very good year, as birds are found virtually everywhere!
