Cyprus: Akrotiri tour

Most of today was spent around the Akrotiri area, visiting several coastal wetland sites within the UK military base, with a good variety of birds - despite the obvious degradation of some of the key wetlands due to urban expansion from Lemesos and competition for water with agriculture and urban growth.  Most exciting was a brief but good view of a male black francolin, and both make and female little crakes. An early morning walk in Pissouri brought me very close to a couple of Cretzschmar's buntings in the village and some nice close up pics.
