A record shot of the four female types that  have been making an appearance in the area in the late afternoon since the weekend. A rare bird for Cyprus, the last record was of up to three in the same area in January 2011.  A female was at Potamos Liopetri late January/early February 2009, while up to six had spent several weeks at the same location in early 2008.
