Birdwatching in Athens: Fall migration 2017 snapshots

August has come and bird migration has started to become evident countrywide. Thanks to summer rains, most of the wetlands of Athens are not completely dry and attract waders, herons and waterfowl. Migrant passerines also make an appeareance, especially shrikes. It's going to be another interesting season!
