Lesvos is known as a birders paradise in Europe. The main area's I have visited where the salt pans of Kalloni, the Perasma reservoir and lake Metochi. The Perasma reservoir was a great location for photographing bee-eaters. The bee-eaters were nesting in the banks of the rivers and kept flying on and of giving many photographic opportunities. Lake Metochi was the best location for photographing the Baillon's crake (Porzana pusilla). On the road towards the lake you would pass an area with eucalyptus trees. These tree's are home for a smaal owl species, the Eurasian scops owl (Otus scops). The salt pans of Kalloni are the biggest attraction for birders though with a great diversity in birds.
