If you”re thinking about Cyprus for a holiday this year, potential visitors are reminded that it is a destination also favoured by several hundred species of birds.
The island provides an unrivalled bird-watching prospect as millions of exotic birds fill the Cypriot sky and landscape during the Northern migration journey between the continents of Europe, Africa and Asia which occurs between August and October.
Cyprus”s geographical position provides an ideal stopover for a huge number of birds.
Some species are rarely seen anywhere else, some only visit fleetingly and leave after a day or two and some can be spotted regularly as they nest for weeks or even months.
Birdwatchers from all over the world enjoy this annual natural spectacle which can be enhanced if visitors join one of the organised tours.
Knowledgeable local experts invariably know when and where to look for the best experience and can offer informal commentary.
From the salt lakes filled with Greater Flamingos to the Troodos Mountains – home to Griffon Vultures – there is always something to see.
Go to Cyprus, millions of birds can”t be wrong.
