02 January 2020, delta, Lake Kerkini, Central Macedonia, Greece 96 LWfG observed. 96 LWfG feeding at the mouth of the river next to the river bed. Mr. Blue is among them. Since September, the birds usually stayed in Delta area, close to the lakeshore, far away from the eastern dike and the forest. Due to rains in October-November, the place is still green. They rarely were moved to other areas (i.e., close to the eastern dike or close to the forest), and it is more difficult to count them there. Source: LKMA team (Th. Naziridis). Map:
