Chloe and I decided to take a mini-hike this morning on the trail around the rock, after all the booze and food we've had this past few days. It was nice and windy, with big waves and strange light. I love this country, I really do...

Any ideas what this is? These dudes were parked at Kolonaki square these days...

Wet, wet, wet

Rodia, an important eel-fishing place
Little Egrets on the way to Salaora Island
Some Dalmatian Pelicans chilling in Logarou lagoon
More beauty...
Just got back from Amvrakikos Gulf, another Natura 2000 and Important Bird Area site, where i had some work in the amazing wetlands. My friend Dimitris of the Rodia Wetland Center was kind enough to take me for a ride in his motorboat around the huge lagoon. Although there is a Management Agency, in which I partake, supervising and protecting these very important, massive, ecosystems of western Greece, the Ministry of Environment is still refusing to officially designate the protected area with proper legislation and funding. The area suffers from a lot of illegal activities such as poaching, hunting, dumping, building etc.
