Lesvos April 2012

Our group of 8 enjoyed a wonderful week in sunny Lesvos, in fact it was a little too sunny at times, the temperature 
rose to nearly 30 C on a couple of days which made the birding very tiring! But we had a great time, leisurely 
days and plenty of birds to see. Highlights included a Pygmy Cormorant at Dipi Larisos on day one, two Great 
Spotted Cuckoos, 2 beautiful male Collared Flycatchers at Meladia, a very showy Long-eared Owl with Scop’s 
Owls sitting in the next tree. Hundreds of terns, waders, egrets, ibis and herons on the Alykes wetlands. Even our 
last day produced excitement in the shape of a Dalmatian Pelican, a rare visitor to Lesvos; we saw one at the 
Kalloni Salt Pans. We had great views of most of the Lesvos ‘specials’: Kruper’s Nuthatch, Cretzschmar’s & 
Cinereous Buntings, Rufous Bush Robin, Masked Shrike, Western Rock Nuthatch and many more.
