The NHMC site lies on coastal line of the town, with a nice view to Cretan sea.
Places for interest for Gulling are the harbour, the Almyros wetland to the west and the waste tratment site further west. From NHMC there are easy paths to the west (Giofyros river mouth) and to harbour to the east. (next picture). During late November most wintering gulls are present including the common Yellow-legged and Black-headed, also Mediterranean, Caspian, Baltic, Lesser Black-backed, Heuglin's are easy and in most cases Armenian, Slender-billed, Little and Audouini's gulls are present. Pallas Gull is a vagrant with good chance to be present too, other taxa/forms are either vagrants or still unconfirmed for the site.
