Artist's Description

The Eurasian Spoonbill or Common Spoonbill is a wading bird, breeding in southern Eurasia from Spain to Japan, and also in North Africa. Most birds migrate to the tropics in winter, with European breeders mainly going to Africa, but a few remaining in mild winter areas of western Europe. It occurs in marshy wetlands with some open shallow water, nesting in colonies in trees or reedbeds.
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.
