One of Europe's finest spring migration "hotspots". A spring visit to Lesbos enables you to enjoy birds from Eastern and Western Europe on a quiet island. Good wine, historic sites and a relaxed way of life add to the birding experience as you watch shrikes, orioles, warblers and birds of prey move from Africa north to their breeding grounds in Europe.
