Kerkini lake hosts 227 kinds of birds, especially non-migrants and 76 of them are recorded in the National Red Catalogue, while at least 31 of them are protected by EEC’s Directive concerning wild life.

One of the beauties of Lake Kerkini is that the birding is good all year round. Since Kerkini is a breeding area and a stop-off point along a major migration route the lake is always full of birds and often willing to offer up those special magic moments to anyone who gives a decent viewing.

What makes an exceptional presence is the buffalo’s herd in the area of Kerkini lake.
