Northern Greece is undoubtedly one of the best birdwatching areas in Europe, and this guide updates to Finding Birds in Greece, based on a visit in spring 2014.

‘‘When I revisited northern Greece in 2014 I was reminded just how exceptional it is for birding. Nearby western Turkey may have some extra, more exotic species such as Green Warbler and Brown Fish Owl, but the birding in Greece is much more enjoyable because of the far greater numbers of raptors, warblers, buntings, shrikes and, especially, waterbirds. The fact that I filmed over 100 species on one 3 week trip (compared with 60-80 at every other European area I’ve visited so far) gives you an idea just how exceptional this area is.”
