The LBRC has been formed at the request of the Hellenic Rarities Committee (HRC) to encourage birders to submit records of nationally rare species seen on Lesvos. During discussions it became apparent that the Committee could have a wider role in recording the birds of Lesvos, something which has been sadly lacking until now.
The role of the Committee will be –
1. to maintain an official list of birds recorded on Lesvos
2. to encourage visiting birders to submit bird records, in particular
a. Greek national rarities to HRC
b. Local Lesvos rarities to LBRC
c. Records of breeding birds on Lesvos
The Committee’s current members are Eleni Galinou (LBRC Secretary - Lesvos/Samos), Steve Dudley (UK), Nikos Probonas (Athens, Greece) and Terry Robinson (Lesvos).
