Cyprus: rock thrushes and exotic buttercups

Our week in the sun has flown by, and has actually been quite wet at times, surprisingly so for Cyprus! Highlight today was fantastic views of a group of at least seven rufous-tailed rock thrushes gathered on a rocky hillside high up on the Akamas Peninsula.  They are on migration, quite likely heading to the mountains of Turkey.  Also a pair of beautiful blue rock thrushes at this site.  Many botanical delights too; this really is a great place to see flowers in profusion, especially orchids, and the stunning Persian buttercup pictured below.
