Late Season Cyprus Birding

Birding on Cyprus has been good even though it is late in the autumn migration season.

Highlights include:

Akrotiri Marsh and Zakaki Pools - Armenian and Slender-billed Gulls, Squacco Heron, Little Bittern, Bluethroat, Penduline T, Moustached Warbler, Citrine Wagtail and Black Francolin.

Eleonora's Falcons at nearby Kensington Cliffs. They'll be off soon!

Finsch's Wheatears at Anarita Park... at last! What a smart species.

Greater Sandplovers at Paphos Headland.

Not bad given the weather is stuck in high pressure with a consistent NE windflow.
