Spring Birds at Lake Kerkini

A Squacco Heron On Lake Kerkini   Photographed During The NaturesLens Spring Birds Of Lake Kerkini Photography Holiday

We are pleased to be announcing a new photography holiday for the birds & other wildlife of Lake Kerkini that will take place in Spring 2019.

Lake Kerkini is already a familiar destination, we have been running our Dalmatian Pelican photography tours to the area for the last 4 years, now in 2019, join NaturesLens for a unique wildlife experience, getting up close & personal with the Spring Birds of Lake Kerkini all within their natural habitat of the beautiful Lake Kerkini in northern Greece. This trip encompasses four full days spent getting to know this unique landscape, offering extensive opportunities to photograph a multitide of species such as the little owls, bee-eaters, herons, cormorants, the pelicans & much more – including, hopefully, as seen below, the young of the Grey Heron!
Our tour is based at the same hotel close to the lake that we make use of for the winter visits, so we already know that the food & accommodation will be great. Similar to our winter visits, the rare Dalmatian & the more common White Pelican are to be found on the lake, but for this tour, our focus shifts to the impressive selection of nesting waterbirds on the lake, & also those in the lake-side environment, including hoopoe, little owl, bee-eater & more.
For the duration of the next 4 days, you will be in a prime location with the best facilities to fully explore & capture images within this wetland paradise. Each morning, before sunrise, you will head out to the lake on a boat, during this time you will capture images of the multitude of waterbirds that make their homes within the waterside vegetation. In other areas of the lake, drowned trees reach skywards forming perches for cormorants & other bird-life that are happy to watch you as you drift by.
The bulk of afternoons will see the group split into pairs. We will have had hides set-up for a number of species, including, hopefully, bee-eaters, hoopoe & little owl, although this may change according to species availability. However, one afternoon will be spent on the boat until beyond sunset, hopefully capturing silhouette images of the birds against a suitably-coloured sky.
This is a photography holiday of 5 night/6 day duration, that costs £1399 per participant & takes place in Kerkini in Greece, between the dates of 25th – 30th May 2019.
