Lesvos, 6-8 May, part I

Cinereous Bunting @ Paraoila

Kruepper's Nuthatch @ Achladeri Forest
We had great time in Lesvos, from 6-8 May. A total of 115 species in 3 days, not so many as we expected, since it has been a very late and slow migration. We missed breeding such as Olive-tree Warbler, but we had the following highlights:
-Goshwak @ Parakoila
- Levant Sparrowhawk @ Sigri-Eressos road
- Baillon's Crake @ Metochi Lake
- Cattle Egret @ Kalloni Saltpans

Levant Sparrowhawk (Accipiter brevipes) @ Sigri-Eressos road

Baillon's Crake (Porzana pusila) @ Metochi Lake

Goshawk (Accipiter gentilis) @ Parakoila

More pictures and bird lists to be posted soon
