A Baillon’s Crake in Athens (Rafina)

Several days have passed from the appearance of a Baillon’s Crake at the estuary of the stream of Rafina city near Athens. Since this is a quite difficult bird species to observe in Greece, there were many bird watchers that went to see it.

Baillon’s Crakes are usually passing migrants for Greece and you can only spot them during the migration period. In addition they usually remain hidden into dense reeds, which makes spotting them even more difficult.
This time however everybody had the chance to easily see and even take pictures of that species in November!
