Lake Kerkini National Park, in north-eastern Greece, is a beautiful, little known and globally important nature reserve.
The wetland and associated forests, mountains and pastoral habitats are hosts to a wide variety of up to 300 species of breeding, passage and over-wintering birds. See Dalmation and white pelicans, pygmy cormorants, flamingos, raptors, passerines plus many thousands of waterbirds. Add to this a rich environment of flora, butterflies, dragonflies and other varied wildlife all waiting to be discovered.
This travelogue features the changing seasons throughout the year, giving a guide as to when to go and what you are likely to see.
A truly wonderful destination – easy to get to, comfortable places to stay, easy access to bird-rich habitats and still as yet relatively unknown.
