Lesvos April 2011

I met Andy and Dave at Gatwick at 6am and we travelled to Athens with Easyjet arriving at 2:40pm. We met up 
with Mike and Pat at the Aegean check-in desk where we took the 5:20pm flight to Mytiline. We collected our hire 
bus and drove directly to our hotel in Skala Kalloni, where we met Tony, who had arrived earlier in the day. Once 
we had checked-in and settled into our rooms we re-assembled and set off for a walk. The light was fading but we 
did manage to see some species in the hotel grounds and around the Kalloni Pool.
