A winter trip to Lake Kerkini

Ενημερώθηκε: Φεβ 19

On January 2021 I did my first trip to Lake Kerkini, Greece. This was my fisrt time in Kerkini as well as the first of (hopefully) 12 photography trips for 2021 - 1 per month - to the most important waterlands of Greece to photograph wildlife and its environment.

Lake Kerkini is located in Northern Greece near Serres and Thessaloniki. According to the Ramsar Convention, the wetland of Kerkini has been declared as National Park in Greece. Kerkini is an artificial lake and was formed gradually after 1932 with the construction of the first dam to hold the waters of the river Strymon.

The lake is one of the best places in Europe for bird watching with around 300 rare and protected bird species living and breeding here. Every year many scientists and amateurs from all over the world visit the lake for research and observation.
