Destinations: Vis - Croatia

The island of Vis lies in the Adriatic some 36 km off the Croatian mainland. Ferries to the island run from Split and Hvar to the port of Vis. In summer tourist boats usually land at Komiza. Vis is just 90km2 and can thus be easily worked via its few, but good, roads. In summer there is Blue Rock Thrush, Black-eared Wheatear, Tawny Pipit. Woodchat Shrike, Pallid and Common Swifts and various warblers but the main attraction will be Eleonora's Falcons that breed on the cliffs and which are fairly certain from July to September.
