Birdwatching in Greece: 1st post-lockdown trip in Prespa Lakes, May 29-30, 2021 Part II

On the second day, birding in the lakes was limited to three hours but it was enough to have great views of Greylag Geese (this is the southernmost breeding area in Europe), Bearded Reedlings, Reed and Great Reed Warblers along with dozens of Squacco and Night Herons.

We had a long drive home, so we started our way back and made a stop at Kalampaka in Thessaly, where we had great views (and photos) of Rollers in the riparian forest of Mourgani river, close to Kalampaka. There were also Hoopoes, Golden Orioles, Common Redstart; a Levant Sparrowhawk was also sighted.

Birdwatching in Greece: 1st post-lockdown trip in Prespa Lakes, May 29-30, 2021 Part I

 After a long period of no birding trips due to lockdown measures, the first birding trip for 2021 is a fact! 

The destination was Prespes Lakes, in Western Macedonia, at the borders with Albania and Northern Macedonia. An amazing National Park, the only place in Greece and the southernmost limit in Europe, where Goosanders breed and a haven for Dalmatian and Great White Pelicans, several herons and Pygmy Cormorants, among many other birds. 

The target birds of the trip were the Goosander, the Marsh Warbler and the Barred Warbler. They were all seen pretty good, and the first two were also photographed. The Marsh Warblers were seen in the riparian forest, in reedbed patches; other species seen were the Red-backed Shrike, the Nightingale, the Golden Oriole, the Turtle Dove and the Honey Buzzard.

In Lake Megali Prespa, we got to see 20 Goosanders, an amazing figure given it is a rare species after all. Great White and Dalmatian Pelicans were very common, as were Great and Pygmy Cormorants.

More than 65 species were seen during that day, a great number given the circumstances as we arrived at noon.

Birdwatching in Athens: Spring 2021 Highlights, Part II

 Some more pics from birdwatching trips around Athens, during spring 2021. Most birding was carried out in areas around Athens, since COVID-19 restrictions were applied and thus moving to prefectures out of Attica was prohibited. Fortunately, we are soon going to be free to go birding all around Greece, after May 15th, when all these restrictions will be over.

Birdwatching in Athens: Spring 2021 Highlights, Part I

 It has been a very rough year, in all respects. The COVID pandemic affected the entire planet and restricted outdoor activities due to the extended lockdowns. Nevertheless, there is a light at the end of the tunnel as the vaccination process is a game changer. Seeing a brighter future, we will share some of the most interesting sights of 2021 spring migration in Athens.

COVID-19 and backyard birding: A day to day diary

Corona Virus (COVID-19) has caused movement restrictions to most citizens of the world, including Greece. Birders struggle, having no chance but stay home and watch birds from backyards, roofs or windows. Spring migration is on the way, so if one is lucky, he can observe some interesting species. Still, not as good as being birding in the field, but better than nothing.
So for the next weeks, I will be posting day to day bird sightings from our place in Rafina, Athens GREECE,

Stay safe, stay home and keep birding!

Birdwatching in Greece: Two-day Birding Tour in Athens and Messolonghi, August 9-10 2019, Part II

Day 2

On Saturday, August 10th, we started just before dawn so that we could find the Scops Owl. We visited Mt Hymettus and saw one very well. Just when we started driving to Messolonghi Lagoons, Brett felt sick and we had to postpone the trip till the next day, Sunday 11th.

Day 3 

We started very early in the morning of August 11th and headed to Messolonghi, c.250 km west of Athens. By 08.30, we had reached Kleisoura Gorge, the first destination and found at least one Griffon Vulture, perched on a cliff ledge. We also saw several Rock Nuthatches, lots of Jackdaws, one Blue Rock Thrush and a few tits.

Next stop was the saltpans of Messolonghi, where we found many Slender-billed Gulls Avocets and Flamingos, among others. At Neochori village, we saw some juvenile White Storks, still at their nests.

The main lagoons (Louros area and Kleisova) were full of waders; stints, shanks and sandpipers, along with Spoonbills, egrets and herons, Dalmatian Pelicans and Pygmy Cormorants. Terns were also still numerous, especially Little and Common. The most interesting passerines were the Rufous-tailed Scrub Robin, the Lesser Grey Shrike, the Penduline-tit and the Spanish Sparrow.

Spoonbill
We had a full day of birding and it was time to get back to Athens. We saw a total of 69 species (+4 on Saturday) and a totel of 112 species for the two days!

Birdwatching in Greece: Two-day birding tour in Athens and Messolonghi, August 9-10, 2019

Brett and Madeleine came all the way from Australia for a big European tour. Greece was one of their destinations and they wanted to add some more lifers to their list. Even though most of the summer visitors (e.g. Ruppell's Warbler, Black-headed Bunting) have already departed from their breeding grounds, there are still plenty of birds around. As they wanted two full days of birding, we planned a full day around Athens for start and then a full day at Messolonghi Lagoon.

DAY 1

August is a windy month so we had to monitor the weather forecast till the very last day to decide where we should go birding on the first day (August 9th). The final verdict was Athens as the following day would be very windy.

The first stop was Erythres plain, NW of Athens. A fairly unknown place for most birders but very rich in birds. As fall migration had started, we quickly saw many migrants like Subalpine, Icterine and Wood Warblers, Woodchat and Lesser Grey Shrikes, Northern Wheatears and Hoopoes. Lesser Kestrels on their post-breeding dispersion were very common. There were also two very low flying Short-toed Eagles and a Honey Buzzard! Another surprise was a migrant Ruppell's Warbler, seen along with the other migrants.

Icterine Warbler

Short-toed Eagle

Just before we go, the call of a Syrian Woodpecker was the best surprise ever; in a few minutes we managed to find the bird, this being the first record of this species in Athens!

We left Erythres and moved to Kopaida plain, a vast area outside of Athens but close enough from where we were. We visited the area to find Bee-eaters and we were not dissapointed as we saw more than 20, along with another Syrian Woodpecker, Turtle Doves, Marsh Harriers and Red-rumped Swallows. 

Bee-eater
After Kopaida, we headed back to Athens, this time visiting the eastern part and more specifically Schinias National Park, the best place to look for the Ferruginous Duck. We saw at least 20 birds and another surprise was the presence of 2 Pygmy Cormorants, Europe's least common cormorant. It is known to overwinter here but staying during the summer is something new; perhaps a resident population will be established shortly. In the area there were also many swifts of all three species, Coots, Moorhens and Great Reed Warblers, to name a few of the birds.

Pygmy Cormorant

Pallid Swift
From Schinias we moved south to Artemis Lagoon, where we saw several waders: Black-winged Stilts, Kentish and Little Ringed Plovers, Curlew Sandpipers and Wood Sandpipers and Little Stints. 
Early in the afternoon, we reached Mt Hymettus, looking for Chukars at the top, to no avail...A Eurasian Sparrowhawk, however, was added to their lifer list. We moved lower, at Kaisariani Forest and saw a very nice Cirl Bunting, Firecrests and Jays, among other birds.

The day was over and the count reached the staggering number of 71 species!

Birdwatching in Athens: Half-day trip, June 20, 2019

David Rupp is a fellow bird guide from Indiana, USA. He contacted us for a half-day tour around Athens and after a couple of emails everything was set for the afternoon of June 20.

Leaving Athens, we made our first stop at the still flooded in June Spata fields. Water levels this year were so high that Mallards, Ferruginous Duck and even Common Pochards nested, along with Coots, Moorhens and Little Grebes. Black-winged Stilts and many passerines, like the Great Reed Warbler were other birds seen.


Next stop was Artemis Lagoon; on the way, we saw a nice Hoopoe flying right in front of us. The lagoon's highlight was a Whiskered Tern, while more Black-winged Stilts and lots of hirundines were also present.
Whiskered Tern
A quick visit to Vravrona added Little Egrets, Red-rumped Swallows and Zitting Cisticolas to our list but it was Markopoulo Fields that added a local specialty: the Rufous Bush Robin. There were also Black-headed Buntings and a nice Little Owl. 

Rufous Bush Robin

Little Owl
We headed to Mt Hymettus and had a great collection of birds in late afternoon: Chukars, Ruppell's Warblers, Subalpine Warblers, Short-toed Treecreepers and Nightjars. At dusk, two Scops Owl also popped up, closing this trip the best way possible as the day's count was 40 species!
