Lesvos - Day 5

This morning a look on the inland lake in perfect morning light produced 6 or 7 Little Crakes, 2 Little Bitterns, Great Reed Warblers, and Red-rumped Swallows amongst others.

After breakfast we headed to Polichnitos Salt pans which were decidedly quiet. 20 Little Stints, Ruff and some Kentish Plovers with chicks was our best.

Back at Kalloni Salt pans we had 1 Whiskered Tern, 4 Gull-billed Terns, 1 Ruddy Turnstone, 2 Spotted Redshanks, 10 Little Egrets and 3 Curlew Sandpipers.

On the East River we heard a River Warbler singing but could not locate it before it fell silent. More Little Bitterns, Glossy Ibis, White and Black Storks, Olivaceous Warblers and Black-headed Buntings.

At Kalloni Pool outside our hotel the Great Bittern showed briefly and 2 Little Bitterns were spotted.

I will add a photo of Little Crake tomorrow.
