Nestled picturesquely between two separate mountain ranges, Lake Kerkini is one of the true jewels of European birding and the core of a nature reserve that is a relatively unexplored wonderland of beauty and biological diversity. Plenty of White Pelicans, Dalmatian Pelicans, Greater Flamingos, Pygmy Cormorants, herons, ducks and other waterbirds, riverside forests and fantastic panoramic view from the mountains of Belasitsa and Krousia give it a characteristic atmosphere. The combination of wildfowl, flora and fauna, good weather for a large part of the year and a virtually traffic-free track around the lake make it ideal for birding and bird photography.
Main approaches: We do the Pelican photography mainly from a special boat in the lake and from the shore.
Opportunities for photography of other species of birds on this trip: Great White Pelican, Pygmy Cormorant, Greater Flamingo, Greater Spotted Eagle, Great Egret and various waterfowl.
