British Birds Photograph of the Year Competition 2002
Lesvos is a magical island, especially in the springtime, when the wildflowers are in full
bloom and huge numbers of migrating and breeding birds arrive in the wetlands, forests and
upland areas.
It has to be one of the best places in Europe to see large concentrations of birds in such a
small area. Here are some of the close encounters you could expect to enjoy.
For more information on visiting the island, contact Richard Brooks, the man who knows the
island and its birds better than anyone else, via his website
