Greater Flamingo

Phoenicopterus roseus

This is a migratory species that travels in large flocks. They visit Greece in March on their way north, then again on their way south in September and October. They can be seen on Lemnos Island in the north Aegean, in Lake Vistonida close to Xanthi, at Kalochori Lagoon close to Thessaloniki and at Nea Kios wetland near Nafplio. Recently they were observed breeding for the first time at Agios Mamas wetland in Halkithiki.
