The small lake at Spata is here again!

It was a quite wet winter this year. The heavy rains here at Athens contributed to the creation of the small seasonal lake at Spata area just beside the Athens International Airport. This is the second time this lake is created during the last few years. Water is not as much as it was the last time (back in 2011), but it should be enough to maintain the little lake during the entire spring migration period.

I went there 10 days ago and the first spring visitors were already there. The Ruff shown in the following photo was one of them.

It seems that spring migration will be very interesting this year…
