New book about Dadia reserve in Greece

Just received a book published by WWF Greece, which includes a
selection of scientific papers regarding the famous Dadia raptor reserve
in North-eastern Greece.
It is actually a systematic presentation of all studies carried out on this area
over the last 20 years.
I was privileged to be commisioned to illustrate this book.
All of the drawings have been done using a simple BIC ballpoint pen.
Attached, few of the illustrations.....

I visited Crete in April and i saw one of your bearded vulture paintings in a brochure, from the museum of national history i think... very nice!
I now want to visit this reserve, looks interresting!
