Lone black swan spotted in Evros

Featured Lone black swan spotted in Evros

A lone black swan, unusual, to say the least, for Greece, was spotted enjoying the Evros Delta.

The black swan was spotted by the staff of the Management Unit of the protected area and posted the photos of the beautiful black swan on Facebook, saying it was a "pleasant surprise".

The black swan lives in Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand and chooses large lakes, lagoons, wetlands, rivers and can also appear along coasts. Something like this had happened with the black swan that appeared in Porto Rafti.

The black swan, like other swan species, is monogamous. It usually mates for life with one mate and if that one dies it does not try to find another.

Its wingspan reaches 2 meters while it feeds on aquatic plants and algae.
