While Greece is usually associated with ancient history and small islands in the pure blue waters of the Aegean Sea, mainland Greece is additionally home to a great wealth of wildlife often only known by specialists.
In northern Greece, in the region near the Macedonian and the Bulgarian boarders, Lake Kerkini is at the centre of an exceptional wetland home to several hundreds of protected species of birds, including Dalmatian pelicans, flamingos, and eagle owls, as well as water buffaloes.
This area offers great opportunities for wildlife photography all year round.
