Lesvos: The bird migration island

Lesvos is one of the most interesting birding destinations within the Mediterranean basin. It combines the excitement of migration with several key species which can be otherwise difficult to see elsewhere in Europe. It might not have the large numbers of raptors some other places enjoy, but even raptor passage can be exhilarating.

Spring, particularly May, remains the favoured time for birders to visit the island. Increasing numbers of bird watchers, however, do visit at all other times of the year, including autumn and others take family holidays during the summer months.

DiSa-Travel offer some tailor-made bird-watching excursions combined with comfortable accommodation on Lesvos. Contact us for booking or further information.
