Spent the day around Paphos with Brian who especially wanted to see eastern Mediterranean specialties. Amongst the birds we found were four Greater Sand Plover on Paphos Headland, several Spur-winged Lapwing and Red-throated Pipit at Paphos Sewage Works, a male Finsch’s Wheatear and several Chukar at Anarita Park and a very obliging male and female Cyprus Warbler at Asprokremmos Dam who even posed for phototgraphs.
