Lake Kerkini (Greek: Λίμνη Κερκίνη), in Greece, is an artificial reservoir that was created in 1932, and then redeveloped in 1980, on the site of what was previously an extremely extensive marshland. Lake Kerkini is one of, if not the, premier birding site in Greece, as it is situated along the migratory flyway for birds en route to the Aegean Sea, the Balkan region, the Black Sea and beyond. The area surrounding Lake Kerkini has been declared a National Nature Reserve and is protected by the International RAMSAR Convention. The lake is a paradise for bird watchers and nature photographers and presents thousands of birds (227 species), riverside forests, extended areas covered with water lilies and a great fish variety. Another unique feature are the buffalo herds in the surrounding area; furthermore, there are at least 10 amphibian species (frogs, salamanders, tritons), five snail species, 19 reptile species (lizards, snakes, turtles) and a great variety of insects, which play an important part in the food chain.
