Cyprus 17 - A special finish

Had a pre-breakfast stroll around Paphos headland. Bit of a reccy really to see if I could find any holes in the fence! Found a couple but not comfy with it so I just walked the perimeter.

I managed to find a single GREATER SAND PLOVER moving nicely into summer plumage. A Kingfisher was a nice surprise and I saw a couple more Red-rumped Swallows albeit distantly.

The forecast lived up to its poor billing so we headed for another Mall in Limassol. After dropping Louise off I continued towards Larnaca and Achna Dam. A White Pelican (rare in March and a Cyprus tick) had been present there for a few day...but alas, I couldn't find it. I DID add GC Grebe (8) to my island list though.

After lunch I tried Zakaki hide near the Mall while my other half continued bargain hunting. The weather was poor but I managed to sneak a brief view of a Bluethroat. My final stop before I called it off was along the northern part of Lady's Mile. It was more like a river than a road but a group of interesting Gulls...yes Gulls tempted me down the first section.

What could they be?


Yes I've got some pics...although my trusty camera is also playing up must be the weather!
