In late April and early May, a continual stream of migrating birds pass over the Greek Island of Lesvos as they move from their wintering grounds in Africa to their breeding grounds in Europe. The migration magic of Lesvos is enriched by the island’s special birds, including Krüper’s nuthatch, Cinereous Bunting, Cretzschmar’s bunting, Rüppell’s warbler, Sardinian Warbler, Isabelline Wheatear, and Masked Shrike to name a few.
This program will reveal the avian delights of Lesvos with vivid photographs of its birds against the backdrop of charming fishing villages, sea coasts, salt pans, sparkling rivers and lakes, and the slopes of Mount Olympus.
