In north-eastern Greece, on the border with Turkey, the Evros Delta is a vast tract of unspoilt wilderness, extending over more than 150 square kilometres,
just waiting to be explored.

Egrets and Herons in the reedbeds,

horses roaming the marshes,

Swans over the lagoons,

... and raptors "Evros which way you look".

"Special birds" in the Delta area include Dalmatian Pelican, Pygmy Cormorant, Spotted, Imperial and White-tailed Eagle, Black Vulture, massed gatherings of Red-breasted Geese, Syrian Woodpecker, wintering flocks of Calandra Larks - to name but a few.
