Petra and her friend wanted to get some good photos of several target species during her week on Lesvos and used my help for one day. We had a very pleasant day out spotting and photographing the usual breeders around Sigri (Cinereous and Cretzschmar’s Buntings, Sub-alpine Warbler, Rock Nuthatch, Rufous Bush Robin, Eastern Orphean Warbler etc) and discovering so many more migrants (shrikes, Rose-coloured Starlings etc).
The Molivos Tourism Organisation publishes a free-press magazine each summer. About activities, products and sites of Lesvos Island. THis year’s magazine (no 6) had an extensive article about tthe wetlands of lesvos, script and photos by Lesvos Birdwatching.
Read the magazine here (p.23-24)
End of March is a good period to visit Lesvos for birdwatching. Read this trip report from Spyros Skareas and Greece Bird Tours.
