Early morning around Larnaca Sewage Works area, 2nd March 2014

Some evidence of migration this morning around the coastal area south of Larnaca airport. There were two Black-winged Stilt on Meneou Pool together with three juvenile Greater Flamingo and two Isabelline Wheatear in the scrub. In front of the Sewage Works hide there was a small flock of around twenty Red-throated Pipit – some of them in breeding plumage and sporting red throats. On Spiros Pool there was a flock of over forty Ruff feeding with around twenty Golden Plover. There were also a few Kentish Plover, Dunlin and Little Stint.

A small group of eleven Great Cormorant flew east along the coast at Spiros Beach but a much larger one of over 100 flew over the fields south of Pervolia village while I was looking for the Steppe Grey Shrike. It had last been seen on Wednesday in one of the many fields of artichokes there. I had no luck finding it today but did find a ploughed field which had many Eurasian Skylark, at least one Calandra Lark, three Isabelline Wheatear, a male Northern Wheatear and a male dark throated Eastern Black-eared Wheatear.
