Some may have heard that one of the main charter companies (Thomson/First Choice/Tu) have pulled out of Lesvos for 2012. This is obviously deeply worrying for the island economy as a whole, but critical for the birding resort of Skala Kallonis.
I've been working with my Lesvos contacts and with Thomas Cook to try and get Thomas Cook to commence their flights from mid-April (from 5 May) in order to maximise the spring birding season.
We progressed a little this morning with Thomas Cook informing me that they are 'scheduling' early spring departure dates. For more info on this, and for further updates, see the Lesvos Birding website.
