From herons and wildfowl cruising along the pristine coastlines of Akamas peninsula to raptors and passerines drawn to the wetlands and scrub of the Akrotiri peninsula, autumn in Cyprus is a birdwatcher’s dream, says NGO BirdLife Cyprus.
In a post on their Facebook page, that also features a video, BirdLife Cyprus notes that Cyprus’ unique location on one of the major migration routes between Europe and Africa makes the island a key stop-off point for hundreds of thousands of birds, and an abundance of natural areas promise a unique countryside, rich in birds and culture, waiting to be discovered.
