10 more stunning images of the Spring Birds of Lake Kerkini

This is the second of the blog postings from David’s visit to photograph the spring birds of northern Greece in June 2019. The first blog post can be found here.

The squacco heron has replaced the green heron as my favourite comical heron. There’s just something about their features & character that makes me smile whenever I see photos of them. The low perspective really helps to make these two images.
Gorgeous light helped to illuminate the feathers on this cormorant. I think this is my favourite image from all the ones that David sent in.  A simple portrait but the bird just pops & I love all the detail in the feathers.
Lake Kerkini offers very different photographic opportunities in June and it is also a lot warmer! Lazy days gliding on a tranquil lake through a submerged forest filled with an impressive selection of nesting waterbirds.
For those of you who have been to Lake Kerkini with us, you will be pleased to know that we stay at the same hotel that we use for our Dalmatian Pelicans trip. For those of you who have not yet visited Kerkini with us, our hosts provide great hospitality, lots of delicious food and you also get to meet our amazing boatman.
Our guide will be on hand to offer guidance so that you go home with a portfolio of images that you will be proud to show off to your friends and family.
Thanks to David for sharing his wonderful images with us. We hope to see you again soon!

David was another attendee on our Spring Birds of Lake Kerkini trip in June 2019. He sent in so many stunning images that we decided to spread them over two blog posts.

A regular NaturesLens client, David has also visited Lake Kerkini with us many times for the iconic Dalmatian Pelicans. In fact, after he visited Lake Kerkini for the second time with us, he asked us, “when are you going to run a trip to photograph the spring birds?”

Steen has visited Lake Kerkini with NaturesLens on several occasions prior to this visit; although those visits were all during the winter. During that colder season, the birds of Lake Kerkini are composed mainly of flamingos, cormorants & of course, the characterful Dalmatian Pelicans. When we announced our new photography holiday for 2019 to focus on the Spring Birds of Lake Kerkini, Steen signed up & along with the other guests, waited for the months to pass, knowing that the spring visit would be very different to that in Winter!

A recent visit to the Little Rann of Kutch in India

Many followers of NaturesLens will probably know that David & I have been friends for many years. Well before he & Pui Hang set up NaturesLens & have enjoyed many photographic adventures together.

Just before Christmas 2017, David asked me if I had been to the Little Rann of Kutch. I said I had never even heard of it. Kutch is a little-known wildlife destination in the state of Gujarat near the Pakistan border.  So off we went in March this year to carry out a recce for NaturesLens.
