This DVD introduces you to the best birdwatching sites in the Greek part of Cyprus and gives you a real ‘feel’ for what it’s like to go there.
The best sites - covers all the best birding sites around Paphos, Polis, Akrotiri, Larnaca and Ayia Napa - including many important sites that you may not have heard of before.
The best birds – sit back and enjoy footage of almost 70 species, including all the endemic species and sub-species and many migrants, including some rarities, all filmed using high-definition digital video cameras.
The best information – find out more about the sites and their birds, including what to listen for, to help you find more species
Join British birder, Dave Gosney, on his visit to Cyprus during the period of spring migration. You’ll see footage of the most exciting species, you’ll get an idea of what each of the sites is like and you’ll learn more about the island and its birds.
Running time: 1 hour and 5 minutes
This book will tell you all you need to know about exactly where and how to find the best birds in the Greek part of Cyprus.
Dave Gosney writes: ‘To find out what’s about in Cyprus you can look on their website, call their BirdLine or just talk to any birders you meet. But you’ll probably be told that the best bird is at somewhere like Oroklini Marsh or Ayia Napa Sewage Works or Acheleia reeds or Anarita Park - places you’ve never heard of because they don’t feature in other books. However, all these sites, and many more, are described in detail in my book with clear maps to show you exactly where to go. I hope it’ll help you to find many more birds than you could without it.’
