Visited Anarita Park this afternoon to see if could relocate the Red-fronted Serin that had been found there on Friday. Went with the local birders who found it but we had no luck. There were several small flocks of finches around – mainly European Serin and Goldfinch with a few Chaffinch and Greenfinch as well as at least thirty Corn Bunting. We had good views of a male Finsch’s Wheatear, one of the area’s resident Little Owls and a male Hen Harrier so they made up for it. Two Long-legged Buzzard were soaring in the distance over Anarita village.
In the morning I had visited the Paphos Headland. There were forty nine Golden Plover, four Greater Sand Plover and a Dunlin on the coast and in the archaeological site I found at least eleven Woodlark, a couple of Common Starling and the usual winter visitors – Eurasian Skylark, Common Stonechat, Black Redstart, Meadow Pipit, Common Chaffinch, Song Thrush and resident Common Linnet, Sardinian Warbler and Spanish Sparrow.
