Spring brings with it many changes in nature. It is also the time of major movements of birds.

Evros Delta is one of the most important areas in moving between the positions of birds wintering and breeding.

Spring migration brings many new species of herons, waders, gulls, terns, etc. The last recording, made ​​by the scientific personnel of Evros Delta Management Authority, was on 09 April, and some of the most important recordings presented here.

So, important was the presence of Spur-winged Plover with 64 ind., mainly in the eastern Delta.

Also observed around 120 Greenshanks, 600 Ruff, 200 Marsh Sandpipers, 250 Wood Sandpipers and many other small waders.

Remarkable is also the recording of 120 Glossy Ibis and 160 Little Egrets.

Terns were also recorded with Little Tern, Common Tern and Sandwich Tern.

The remaining ducks are relatively few while large populations of ducks have now gone, but several species were recorded, including Shelduck, Shoveler, Wigeon, Pintail, Gadwall, etc.
