Artemis Lagoon

Attica  >  Greece

Small lagoon, with easy access, holding water all year long. Great for autumn (best for plovers and sandpipers) and spring migration. Bring swimsuit in summer.

Description

The lagoon is holding water all year long, so there is always something worth to see. Especially from mid July to September, when the rest of the region is practically dry, Artemis Lagoon provides the best habitat for autumn migrants, mostly shorebirds. Spring is also interesting, with lots of Black-winged Stilt breeding, terns, herons and other migrants
