|Lake Kerkini and its surrindings offer a wide range of habitats, providing excellent opportunities for many south-eastern european species. Whether in winter with many raptors and Pelicans, or in the spring or summer, with hordes of breeding herons and cormorants, there's always something to see.
|Waterbirds are one of the attractions, and Dalmatian Pelicans breed here, as well as using the lake for
feeding in the winter. They are joined by a few Great White Pelicans, Pygmy Cormorant, Spoonbill, Night and
Squacco Herons and in winter, Greater Flamingo. Ferruginous Duck is regular.
|In the winter, there are goose flocks, which include White-fronted and Lesser White-fronted Geese, and
quartering the area are Greater Spotted, White-tailed and Golden Eagles.
|During the spring and summer, Black Kites abound and Short-toed Eagle is regular. The fields hold Black-
headed Bunting, Isabelline Wheatear, Calandra and Crested Larks, as well as Tawny Pipit. Red-rumped
Swallows can be seen, and Great Reed Warblers sing from any reedbeds.Nightingales are very common in the
scrub, and woodpeckers include Black, Grey-headed, Syrian and Middle-spotted.
Hoopoe and European Bee-eaters are common in spring, and other species which can be sought include Cirl and
Rock Buntings, Rock Nuthatch and Sombre Tit.
