Bird Watching in Cyprus

Gonyeli and Kanlikoy Reservoirs are the two bird watching sites in Nicosia. The reservoirs provide good bird watching all year round and more than 110 bird species have been seen at the two sites in Cyprus.

Korucam Burnu is a bird watching site in Kyrenia. This is a particularly good area in the spring and offers many interesting species. Gecitkoy Reservoir is another site in Kyrenia. Because the water supply is permanent, bird watching is possible all year round and many different species of water birds have been seen here.

Koprulu Reservoir is in Famagusta and is a good site that requires more than one visit.

For bird watching in the Karpaz area there is Lake Mehmetcik and The Karpaz Peninsula. In the spring you can see the passage of falcons, harriers and buzzards.

The lake in Limassol is host to large number of Greater Flamingos and a variety of ducks.

Paphos is an unspoiled paradise for bird watchers in Cyprus at any time, but particularly during the migration season. Dhiarizos Valley, a few miles south of Paphos, offers the only real extensive freshwater in Cyprus and you should see Black Francolin, Woodchat Shrike, Tawny Pipit and many more.
