Cyprus Bird Watching Tours - BIRD is the WORD - Tour - Paphos 27/04/2019
We set out straight to the foothills where we got incredible views of Bonelli's Eagles perching not far away for lengthy times and also flying low, a great start to the day. A Hoopoe showed well as we left the site and many Serin were in song.
Next we headed to kathikas for Black-headed Bunting, we actually found quite a few and got great views and photo opportunities with them. As we left the site a Black Francolin showed close at the side of the road.
We stopped for some food and then continued back to Paphos to check out Minthis Hills for Cretzschmar's Bunting. They took a long time to show, though we had a Common Rock Thrush nearby to keep us occupied until they finally presented themselves.
As we headed back we stopped for a young Chameleon crossing the road, which we helped and snapped a few photos of too. Targets achieved, not the highest bird count but some great species and fantastic views. 47 Species.
Great Spotted Cuckoo
Cyprus Scops Owl
Eastern Olivaceous Warbler
European Pied Flycatcher
