The Isabelline Wheatear is very common on passage through Cyprus during both the spring and autumn. It is usually the first wheatear to be seen and among the first migrants of the year. Also seen on migration are the Northern Wheatear, Eastern Black-eared Wheatear and Desert Wheatear. The Cyprus Wheatear is an endemic migrant breeder. Finsch’s Wheatear are localised winter visitors between October and March with a few occuring on passage. Hooded, Mourning, Kurdish, Pied and White-crowned have occured as vagrants.
