Birding/ Bird watching on Cyprus


Sunday 14th of March 2021 and I go to look for a souvenir doll for my friend, without any luck. I walk down to the water front and I start my eBird app and I walk towards the marina. The eBird hotspot is called “Paphos Lighthouse Area” but no lighthouse to be seen.

Looking for the entrance and I see a lot of House Sparrows and I also see the Collared Doves and Hooded Crows and I found out that I had to enter an entrance reach the light house. You have to enter the Paphos Archaeological Park.

Admission fee 4€ 50¢ and it was worth the money to get inside.

Entrance at the marina so I followed the water front to the marina and I discovered the building where the entrance to the Paphos Archaeological Park.

I find an ice cream van close to the entrance to the Paphos Archaeological Park and I go to check it out. I find out that they have soft ice cream. I order one BIG soft ice cream and he have to Soft ice creamstart the van to get power to the ice cream machine.

The ice cream was excellent and when I had finished the ice cream I gave to cone for the birds to eat.

I went to the entrance to the Paphos Archaeological Park and I paid the entrance fee and my ticket was stamped with the biggest stamp Birding/ Bird watching on Cyprus - Paphos Lighthouse AreaI have ever seen.

I got the ticket and I went out on the back and I was soon running in to two Great Tits.

I could hear a lot of birds and we had many Barn Swallows flying around.

I walk towards the light house and I see that there are both Barn Swallows with white belly and some of the Barn Swallows was very red and dark.

I sent a picture to my Guide and it was the transitiva subspecies, middle -east.

But I could not find any references to this in eBird. I will see if I can find anything about the different subspecies.

I spotted several warblers going towards the light house. I hear a lot of birds but did not see any birds before I sat down to have a look around. I never got any good pictures, but good enough to ID the birds I didn't know.

It is a nice area to walk around in and I decided to come here on our next day off from the birding with the CYPRUS BIRD WATCHING TOURS

I left the Paphos Archaeological Park and I turned off my eBird app. I skipped the ice cream van walking back home, and I also skipped the supermarket. Sunday today and there was a lot of people walking along the water front. People selling balloons, actually one kid lost her balloon and I was running after the balloon. They screamed that it was not necessarily. But I don’t want no flippin' balloon in the nature

Ask me and I would have ban the balloons. Balloons is just trash in the nature.

No more food and I had planned for an “Oatmeal Surprise” but I had fish fingers in the freezer so fish finger it was.
