Visited the eastern edge of Akrotiri Salt Lake this afternoon – my first visit there this spring. Although the run-off from Zakaki Marsh is dry there is still water in the Salt Lake. I found at least eighty Greater Flamingo, two Eurasian Spoonbill, four Black-winged Stilt, thirty Common Shelduck, thirty two Gull-billed Tern, eleven Little Tern and several Ruff, Little Stint and Kentish Plover.
Before leaving Limassol I revisited both Akrotiri Gravel Pits and Zakaki Marsh where I had been in the morning. Of interest in the afternoon were a female Semi-collared Flycatcher in the Agios Georgios Church, a European Roller at Akrotiri Gravel Pits and a Temminck’s Stint at Zakaki.
