Joined the BirdLife Cyprus field trip around Armou and the Ezousas Valley. Lots of finches around, some Woodlark and thrushes. Most interesting were the seven species of raptors that we saw – Common Kestrel obviously but also a male and a ringtail Hen Harrier, several Long-legged Buzzard, a Common Buzzard, a female European Sparrowhawk and a male Peregrine Falcon. But the stars were the two adult Bonelli’s Eagle and another young one that were in the Ezousas Valley.
