Cyprus Bird Watching Tours - BIRD is the WORD - Half day Tour - Paphos 28/02/2019
We started at the Headland in hope of seeing the scarce Desert Wheatear seen some days ago. It was near enough the first bird that we saw and provided incredibly close views at times. A great start. The winds increased at this point to about 20-30mp/h making the walk along the coast a bit chilly. It seemed to have affected the birds as we didn't manage to see any of the shorebirds usually present, though we had great close views of Common Stonechat, Crested Lark, Meadow Pipit and Red-throated Pipit. As we headed back to the car we had lengthy views of a Corn Bunting foraging in the grassy area near the fort.
As we was leaving the site I noticed a large raptor in the sky, a 1st plumage Bonelli's Eagle, distant but nice to see.
