Cyprus Bird Watching Tours - BIRD is the WORD - Half Day tour 6/10/2019
On entry we located a few Cyprus Warbler though they weren't showing overly well though a Blackcap was being unusually confiding. A Eurasian Hobby called and then shot over and Chukar called in the distance and then later seen.
As we headed further down a Kingfisher was heard from the dam itself, on the shrubs we had quite a few Cyprus Wheatear and Cyprus Warbler showing well, along with many Sardinian Warbler and a Willow Warbler. Red-backed Shrike were also present as was a single Spotted Flycatcher. Flocks of Spanish Sparrows were pouring in and feeding.
We then continued to the Sewage Works where we got fantastic views of Spur-winged Lapwing and Turtle Dove.
Then at Mandria we had incredible views of many Laughing Doves right next to the car, a Hoopoe in flight and on the ground, many Northern Wheatear in the plowed fields along with Tawny Pipit and Tree pipit but no sign of Red-throated Pipit which are usually the common species at this time.
We finished the half day with 36 species and all targets met.
