Today I headed to Akrotiri to collect Caitlyn for another tour. It was peak spring migration so I knew we were in for a good day. I arrived a little early so decided to check Phassouri Marsh for some crakes. No crakes were present but a Little Bittern and a Great Reed Warbler were, two fantastic migrants. Sadly I could not re-locate the species after picking up Caitlyn.
The day turned out to be an excellent one, clocking 78 species. Bimaculated Lark and Black-Bellied Sandgrouse were reported in the area previous days but sadly the Bimac must have continued migration and the Sandgrouse were no-where to be seen (although I did locate one a few days later).
Sites visited: Phassouri Reeds, Gravel Pits, Bishops Pool, Lady's Mile, Zakaki Marsh and Akrotiri Salt Lake.
