Crimson-winged Finch – second Cyprus record, Mandria 14th January 2015

Was glad I braved the heavy rain to drive to Mandria today as I was rewarded with good views of the Crimson-winged Finch that had been found there yesterday. It was very mobile and kept company with the many Linnets, Greenfinches and Goldfinches that were flying around the area. A pretty rubbish record shot below. But nice to get a lifer in January!

Also at Mandria were hundreds of Eurasian Skylark, a flock of nearly two hundred Northern Lapwing, ten Golden Plover and a ringtail Hen Harrier. A quick visit to Paphos Sewage Plant produced at Hawfinch, several Song Thrush and Blackbirds, many Chaffinch, a couple of Spur-winged Lapwing and three Cattle Egret.
