Bird watching in Cyprus this autumn (video)

 

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.

BirdLife Cyprus is a registered non-profit, non-governmental organization (NGO) that works to conserve wild birds, their habitats and wider biodiversity in Cyprus, through research, monitoring, lobbying and conservation and awareness-raising actions.

BirdLife Cyprus is currently the most active conservation organisation in Cyprus, running campaigns against illegal bird trapping and poaching and for the designation and protection of Important Bird Areas as Special Protection Areas, as well as campaigns in the area of agriculture, education and awareness-raising.
