Cyprus Birding Tours Trip Report – Morning’s Guiding Paphos 7th August 2014

Leave a comment

A few hours around a couple of Paphos sites on a hot and humid Cyprus summer morning with Rob and Helen produced twenty five different species. We had good views of two of Rob’s target species – Eleonora’s Falcon and Long-legged Buzzard. We were unable to find any Cretzschmar’s Bunting that may have still have been hanging around for his third. Despite checking out a couple of their breeding locations they all appear to have moved out. Plenty of Masked Shrike around and a couple of Turtle Dove still at Kannaviou while a Eurasian Hobby flew over the road in front of us outside Stroumbi.

Locations visited with some of the more interesting species seen there:

Petra tou Romiou: European Shag, Eleonora’s Falcon, Chukar, Cyprus Wheatear

Minthis Hills: Long-legged Buzzard, European Roller, Sardinian Warbler, Masked Shrike

Kannaviou: Eurasian Turtle Dove, Eastern Olivaceous Warbler, Coal Tit, Masked Shrike
