Many species of birds have chosen the Gialova lagoon and Messinia for their final stop before the long migratory flight to warmer parts of Africa.

The Greater Flamingo (Phoenicopterus Ruber), Osprey (Pandion Haliaetus), Levant Sparrowhawk (Accipiter Brevipes), Common Buzzard (Buteo Buteo) and Great White Egret (Egretta Alba), Grey Heron (Ardea Cinerea) are just some of the bird species that one can see at the Gialova lagoon in October.
