The Greek island of Lesbos (Lesvos) is a famous destination for birdwatchers and naturalists. In spring and autumn, the already impressive number of breeding birds swells with the arrival of countless migrants.
Less well known but equally attractive are the hiking trails, superb geology and abundance of orchids. The old trails and minor roads between the villages make inviting walks amidst picturesque woodlands, groves and meadows with the blue Aegean never far away.
The latest Crossbill Guide: Lesbos, Greece covers all these aspects and, like all Crossbill Guides, it answers two questions: "What makes this area so special?", and "How you can see this for yourself?"
There are descriptions of the flora and fauna, landscape and traditional land use, plus 17 detailed routes and 23 sites with concrete indications on where and how to find birds, wildlife and flora. 224 pages.
