Birdwatching in Lasithi (Crete)

This is a wonderful area for bird-watching, with varieties including eagles (golden, harrier and grosbeak), vultures, Eleanora's falcons, red-footed falcons, black-winged stilits, the glossy ibis, as well as all sorts of wades and sandpipers. The mountains are a great place to spot birds of prey while the coastal areas have an abundance of waders and waterfowl, with the Ierapetra reservoir being a particularly good spotting spot.
