Lesvos May 2010

A depleted group (5 instead of 8) enjoyed a wonderful week in sunny Lesvos, in fact it was a little too sunny 
at times, the temperature rose above 30 C on several days which made the birding very tiring! But we had 
a great time, leisurely days and plenty of birds to see. Highlights included a Baillon’s Crake at Metochi 
Lake, a beautiful male Collared Flycatcher at Meladia, a very showy Scop’s Owl and hundreds of terns, 
waders, egrets, ibis and herons on the Alykes wetlands.
