Cyprus 2011- part 2

Squacco Heron, by far the most numerous Heron species seen in all 'wetland' areas visited

European Bee eater, again large numbers seen around the Paphos area

Golden plover, an unexpected find in company with a single Grey Plover on Mandria Beach.
Grey Plover, Mandria Beach

Roller, common often competing with local Jakdaws on rocky cliffs


Cyprus warbler, numerous and in many locations not seen in before. The fear that they might be driven out of breeding areas by the colonisation of the Sardinian warbler does not seem to be happening.

Crested Lark

Black headed Bunting, Smylies trail, Neo Chorio. This was the only sighting of this species.

Golden Oriole, never easy to see well but quite numerous in orchards and woodland areas during the early part of our stay.

Spotted Flycatcher, one of the commonest birds of the trip particularly on thr Arkamas.

Sorry for the delay but distracted by elusive Spoonbills and Night Herons. A few more images from Cyprus.
