"Albert Stoecker "Birds and Nature Photography in Cyprus"
" Some people think that wildlife photography is a hobby, a pastime.
In reality it is exactly the opposite, a sort of purpose in life".

How it all started, my documentary about a Hoopoe Breeding season in Cyprus.
In May 2018, I was looking for a brooding hoopoe couple. In June I received a hint from Jan and Dave Walker regarding the sighting of several Hoopoe in the vicinity of the village of Androlikou, not far from Neo Chorio/Polis.
The Hoopoe should have been seen near a sheep and goat farm, where there was also a small, dried out lake at the time, which usually carries some water in the rainy season.
So I examined every tree in question there for possible breeding caves and found what it was looking for.
I wish you a lot of fun on my website.
