Lesvos first couple of days

Our group has arrived in Lesvos and we have had a good day and halfs birding! Some of the highlights were seeing Baillon's, and several Little Crakes showing really well, Penduline Tit, and some Little Bitterns. We then found a Lesser Grey Shrike shortly followed by a Great Snipe and had some very nice looking White-winged Terns. On the Salt Pand Marsh Sandpipers and Spotted Redshanks showed well, we had Collared Pratincole surrounded by Red-throated Pipits.

Away from the Salt Pans we have enjoyed super views of Sardinian Warbler
And we got great looks at Alpine Swifts with another Pallid Swift but no photos of the Pallid this time.

Also got to see a nice adult Balkan Green Lizard today
