Stranded mi­gra­tory birds treated to a ready meal

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Mem­bers of hunters’ and game­keep­ers’ as­so­ci­a­tions empty bags of corn to feed flocks of mi­gra­tory birds at the wet­land of Nea Kios on the shores of Ar­golic Gulf near Naf­plio, in the north­ern Pelo­pon­nese, over the week­end. Many mi­gra­tory birds have taken refuge in wet­lands in south­ern parts of Greece be­cause of freez­ing con­di­tions in the north of the coun­try. The En­vi­ron­ment Min­istry last week banned hunt­ing un­til Jan­uary 18 to pro­tect en­dan­gered species from poach­ers amid re­ports of a spike in il­le­gal hunt­ing around the coun­try.
