Having reached Sparta late on Friday night on Saturday we initially headed off to the Evrota delta. This river delta has been largely reclaimed for agriculture however there are still some small fragments of this (presumably once great) wetland left. On the way we had great views of the Tagyetos mountains.
There were no big numbers of birds on show however we saw a few interesting migrants, the best of which was a Baillon's Crake feeding along the edge of a drainage channel.
More on the other birds in the next post.
