One of the many Western Jackdaw breeding on the cliffs at Agios Sozomenos outside Nicosia.

In the area I also saw three European Roller, a Peregrine Falcon, a Little Owl and heard a Hoopoe calling and severalEastern Olivaceous Warbler singing. Near the Vathi Gonia Water Treatment Plant there were a couple of Eurasian Reed Warbler as well as a Common Greenshank and several Little Stint around the pool. A surprise spot was a Barn Owl peering out from one of the many holes in the cliffs there. There were many Barn Swallows on the wires including a good number of fledglings.
