Ruppell's Warbler
The island of Lesvos has fast gained a reputation as one of the must visit birding destinations in Europe. The combination of ease of access, superb birding and the sunny, warm climate add up to ensure you experience a holiday to remember. The island is only seventy kilometres long and forty five kilometres wide and lies just ten kilometres from Turkey in the Eastern Aegean Sea. Its geographical location and rich variety of habitats make it an important stopping place for migrants from both east and west. Our base will be the village of Kalloni, on the southern coast- an area ideally situated for exploring the whole island and which also offers birds right on our doorstep. We do not set a fixed itinerary, but carefully watch weather conditions to decide where will best be visited on a daily basis. We do however expect to visit all the sites in the main itinerary and possibly a few that are not mentioned. Your driver/guide will be Steve Cale and you can expect 150 plus species. The island is also a superb place for butterfly enthusiasts.
