This tour was another classic ‘Lesvos’ spring trip, plenty of water, plenty of sightings in stunning scenery and lovely sunshine. Flowers and butterflies enhanced our enjoyment of this beautiful place. Birding highlights included the sighting of some uncommon species such as Broad-billed Sandpiper, Spur-winged Lapwing, Eleanora’s Falcon, we also had good views of Olive-tree Warbler, Rufous Bush Robin, Kruper’s Nuthatch and Great Spotted Cuckoo. It was a very enjoyable experience with a great group of people, we enjoyed some great sightings and encountered 168 species which was a great total and is a testament to how good the group were at finding birds.
