Kirkini, Greece pelican migration

This was my first outing to the Greek-side Struma reservoir of Kirkini known for its large population of Pink and Dalmatian pelicans, Great Blue and Small White herons and a lot of other curious inhabitants.

Not having done much bird photography, we were of course quite pathetic on the first day and scared off half the lake’s population.








Wisened up on the second day we ‘borrowed’ an old wooden boat and rowed into a swampy forest where we got pretty close and shot a lot of keepers
