Vis island – norhternmost nestin point of Eleonora’s Falcon
Searching for Cory’s and Yelkouan Shearwater
Enjoying the Mediteranean on a remote island
A distant island in the middle of the Croatian Adriatic…away from the rest of the world we search for rare birds and enjoy the wilderness in all its beauty! On this trip we will stay for 3 nights on the island of Vis, one of the most remote islands of the Croatian Adriatic, also called „the key of the Adriatic“, due to its great position in the middle of this beautiful sea. Together with the island of Svetac, which we will also visit, the Vis island is the northernmost nesting point of the beautiful and endangered Eleonora’s Falcon (Falco Eleonorae). Cory’s Shearwater (Calonectris diomedea) and Yelkouan Shearwater (Puffinus Yelkouan) are also a part of the rich avifauna that we will have the chance to see and „capture“ with our cameras on this 4 day trip. Traditional life of fishermen of Komiza village and the exquisite Mediterranean cuisine will also enrich our stay on this „Adriatic gem“ – island of Vis.
