The seasonally flooded Alykes Wetlands which wrap themselves around the Kalloni Saltpans at the northern end the Gulf of Kalloni are a magnet for wetland species
Migrants are the life-blood of the birder’s Lesvos, so today will be a full day searching for migrants around the main Gulf of Kalloni wetland sites plus breeding species such as Krüper’s Nuthatch, Short-toed Treecreeper, Masked Shrike and other woodland species in Achladeri Forest on the east side of the gulf.
I run two trips each week around the Gulf, but book early to ensure your place.
We visit a number of sites from (but not exclusively restricted to):
Metochi, Tsiknias River, Kalloni Saltpans, Achladeri Forest, Alikoudi Pool, Polichnitos Saltpans, Kalami and Mesa Wetlands.
