Dadia forest and the Evros mountains

The forest has the reputation of being the best site in Europe for raptors, with 36 of Europe’s 39 species recorded. A 2006 survey found 350 raptor territories during the breeding season.

In two days in the forest in May we saw Black, Griffon and Egyptian Vultures, Golden, Lesser-spotted, Short-toed and Booted Eagles, Common and Honey Buzzards, Lanner, Peregrine, Hobby and Red-footed Falcons and both Sparrowhawks. Add to that the presence of Black Kite and Kestrel with the chance of Imperial and White - tailed Eagles, Goshawk and Long-Legged Buzzard and the reputation seems justified. Imperial no longer breeds but the continued presence of two immatures suggests that this might not always be the case.
