Barmy weather

Greater Flamingos and Black Storks at Kalloni Saltpans, 27 Nov 2010 © Eleni Galinou

Eleni Galinou and her family have recently moved back to Lesvos and I hope to be able to feature more news from her from now on.

Eleni reports that the weather on the island is unseasonably warm with temperatures up to 28C - shorts and t-shirt weather! Maybe this weather has contributed to the high counts for some species including 110 Ruddy Shelducks, 1800 Greater Flamingos and 5 Black Storks at Kalloni Saltpans in recent days. The 8 Dalmatian Pelicans were also still present on the 27 Nov.
