First Rustic Bunting for Cyprus 24th November 2016

Having taken a photo of what I assumed was one of the Common Reed Buntings that was at Paphos Sewage Works on the afternoon of 24th November, it was a ¬†pleasant¬†surprise when Dutch birder Arthur Geilvoet suggested via my Facebook page that the bird had many of the features of a Rustic Bunting. Closer examination showed that he was right. Rustic Bunting has not been recorded in Cyprus before and I still don’t have a good photo of a Common Reed Bunting.
