GREECE - KOS
Kos is maybe a popular tourist destination, but it also appeals to a colourful array of birds that includes European Bee-eater, European Roller, Eurasian Hoopoe, Cretzschmarfs and Black-headed Buntings. Our previous groups have found, to their amazement, that Eleonora's Falcon and Lesser Kestrel are the two most numerous raptors. On the nearby island of Nisyros, which we will visit on one day, the active colony of Eleonora's Falcons inside the volcanic caldera can be spectacular.
Long-legged Buzzards are also common on Kos ,and with luck we may track down Bonelli's Eagle.
Throughout the tour we will be staying at a most comfortable family-owned hotel.
The hotel is located close to a large salt lake, which besides attracting Greater Flamingo, acts as a stopover for migrating herons and egrets, waders and wildfowl.
This will be an At Leisure tour and conducted at a relaxed pace. Some days we will lunch out at tavernas in contrasting small settlements, such as Mastihari, Kamari and on Nisyros.
On other days we will return to the hotel for a midday snack and a chance to take a refreshing dip in the hotels' pool or just chill out of a couple of hours.
