Cyprus Warbler

April 06, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Cyprus was another target for my lens, if secondary to the Wheatear by some distance. Oddly enough I took these images before the Wheatear, but who can stay rational when there are great bird opportunities all over the place. I took these at the Picnic tables on Cape Greco - although 99% of the birds there are House Sparrows, there are a few Warblers hanging around as well. Very skulky indeed, and I got these from the car window. Go early, as at a weekend this area gets very busy. Never got the clean shots I was after and that I had seen on the web, but nevermind, an excuse to go back and it's not like it's a Wheatear is it? As this was my first trip to Cyprus, this was a new bird for me - very striking - Sylvia Warblers have bags of personality, and as I group I could get quite interested in them.
