Lesvos - May 2011
Travelling Naturalist Wildlife Holidays
Phil and I have just returned from an excellent week in Lesvos leading a group of 6 for the Travelling Naturalist. We think this year's trip was the best to date with the West coast dripping in migrants, the salt-pans teeming with marsh terns and waders, the hills scattered with numerous Orchids just in flower & the quality and time spent out birding and sharing these delights with 6 happy clients was a real treat. Thanks to Jed, Margaret, John, Pam, Angie & Trevor for making the trip such a fun and successful one. Here are some of the images taken on this year's Lesvos tour. . . . .

Red-rumped Swallow & a Ruff, Little Ringed Plover, Squacco Heron, Yellow Bee Orchid, Wild Orange Tulip, Hobby, Great Reed Warbler & a Crown Anemone.


  1. Excellent images, Rebecca! I never thought that the island of Lesvos was a birding destination, in addition to its beauty as Mediterranean island, but your beautiful pictures to prove it. Cool images of the swallow and the great reed warbler singing. Greetings from Spain!

  2. Thank you for your comments Atanasio - much appreciated! Yes Lesvos is one of the top birding destinations in Europe in Spring. The birding and photo opportunities are incredible!
