A Birdwatching Guide to Lesvos


After Mallorca in the Eighties and Eilat in the Nineties, Lesvos has been the prime sun-soaked spring destination for British birders. Richard Brooks’s Birding on the Greek Island of Lesvos (1995 and 1998) did much to put it on the map, and following his efforts this new work provides a comprehensive update. Full details are given for more than 60 sites, together with well-drawn maps, a complete checklist and succinct status accounts. To see Europe’s only Krüper’s Nuthatches, Cinereous Bunting and a whole lot more, it’s a must.
