The “famous” visitors of Schinias wetland

Although winter was quite dry this year in Athens and the water level is quite low at Schinias wetland, we did have some pleasant surprises during the migration period. The biggest one so far was the presence of a Spotted Crake and a Citrine Wagtail at the same time and at the same spot!

The news spread very quickly and soon many birdwatchers and photographers rushed to see and photograph the rare visitors, who became famous. These birds must have been the most photographed birds of the month! Despite much work in the office, I was able to make 2-3 very short visits and take some photos. Unfortunately the only time that I saw the Spotted Crake, the light was quite harsh, so the photos are not as good as I wanted but I am not going to complain about that 🙂
