Wildlife in Serres

Pristine forests, craggy mountains, the basin of the Strymonas river and manmade Lake Kerkini all provide refuge for diverse wildlife in Serres. Wild boar and brown bear, mountain cats and foxes as well as hares, hedgehogs, badgers, owls, eagles and numerous waterfowl can be sighted here. At Agio Pneuma, just west of Serres on Mt Menikio, can be found one of the country’s rare populations of wild horses, a herd of about 100. Water buffalo cool off in the shallows of Lake Kerkini near the villages of Vironia and Megalohori. Check out the birdwatching section for a description of the hundreds of species of birds.
