Birdwatching in Athens: Vravrona's wintering highlights

After a few days of sunshine, the rains (and snows) are back in Athens! This means that birding trips are not as easy going as they usually are; on the other hand, if you are persistent (and lucky) you can have a lot of interesting encounters, even under heavy rain:
The Jack Snipe is a widespread winter visitor, but very difficult to find

Mediterranean Gulls are frequent winter visitors

All the fields are full of finches, like those Serins
