SERRES, Greece — At a time that the planet seems to have been immobilised and the human activity has unprecedentely dropped due to COVID-19, the nature preserves its specular mobilisations and this is depicted in the last days at Lake Kerkini in the region of Serres, northern Greece.
The winter visitors of the lake started to arrive from the the far north, visitors that make Lake Kerkini their home for six months.
As the general coordinator of the management body of the National Park of Kerkini Lake Theodoros Naziridis said to Athens-Macedonian News Agency, some tens of swans that have arrived in the last day are very impressive adding that three kind of swans have made their appearance in the last days in Kerkini.
Naziridis said that many tundra swans have already arrived in Kerkini, whose population has significantly risen in Greece in the last years in comparison with the previous decades, as well as five whooper swans and seven or eight mute swans.
"These are small populations and we recognise the birds as they have rings or collars with information on their trip to Kerkini Lake," he said.
