The 2023 Mid-Winter Counts in Evros Delta

For one more winter the Mid-Winter Waterbirds Counts were carried out in the Evros Delta. On Thursday 19th January, the Management Unit of Evros Delta and Dadia National Parks participated in the Mid-winter Counts, which are being held simultaneously in many countries around the world. These counts are carried out every year in over a hundred countries, as part of the global recording program of the organization Wetlands International for over 50 years!

At the same time, Turkish ornithologists carried out the corresponding census in the Turkish part of the Evros Delta. In this way, the total value of birds of Evros Delta in both parts is assessed. This collaboration gives us a more comprehensive picture of the overall Evros Delta system, as well as infomation on bird's movements and habitat use.

The most numerous group, as always, were ducks, with the main species being Common Teals, Mallards, Eurasian Wigeons, Northern Shovelers, Northern Pintails and Gadwalls.
All three species of Swans that winter in the area every year were present, Whooper Swans, Mute Swans and Bewick's Swans, with the Bewick's numbering several thousand and turning the Delta into an international Hot Spot for the species.

There were also the geese, both the White-fronted and the Graylag Geese, as well as the raptors. Among others Greater-Spotted Eagles, White-tailed Eagles, Common Buzzards, Marsh Harriers, Hen Harriers, etc.
Finally, several waders, with the most numerous Dunlins, but also significant numbers of Avocets, Eurasian Golden Plovers, Lapwings, Curlews, etc.
