Cyprus Birding Trip Report - Oct/Nov 2018

Just under 100 species seen in Cyprus in a week at the end of October / early November 2018. A nice variety with some wintering specialities namely Finsch's Wheatear, Moustached Warbler and Armenian Gull. Was lucky to twitch a big rarity - Red-fronted Serin near Larnaca. The weather was good throughout, dry with temperatures mid to high 20s (degrees C) but comfortable, even though the constant NE wind was a bit nagging.

A good birding community on the island and thanks to all who helped me out whilst birding there and for feedback online since the trip, much appreciated.

To see the trip report please visit the tab at the top of the page: Birding Trip Reports - Other and it's the first pdf available at the Cyprus section. Enjoy.
