LESVOS

WINGSPAN'S first return to Lesvos since 2019 because of the COVID pandemic was fantastic, all those happy memories came flooding back and the weather and the birding was just as fabulous. The airport was new, they have moved the entire Terminal building 1 mile down the road, I must say it is a big improvement. The birding was hard work this year, all the species were present but not in the usual high numbers, the spring weather conditions had a lot to do with it. Nevertheless, we had a great time looking for them and saw some terrific birds. The scenery hasn’t changed it is such a beautiful island, I can’t wait to return next year.
