Lambou Mili panorama 4red w caption 2


These are pictures taken over the last few years of the wildlife of Lesvos -
wild flowers, butterflies, and other fauna including a few large, slow-moving, birds.
(the smaller, faster ones are left to the multitude of visiting bird-watchers)
For up-to-date bird sightings and pictures, see
'A Birdwatching Guide to Lesvos' by Steve Dudley, or his website
Some of the results are on these pages - click on any of the pictures below to enter the gallery.

Please note that we are not naturalists - most of the identifications come not
from knowledge but from scouring various field guides,
sometimes, particularly in the case of the flowers, fruitlessly.
Thanks to Steve Dudley and Lazaros N. Pamperis (
for corrections to some of the original identifications.

So if you can identify or correct anything,
please let us know.
