Last Sunday, I had the unique opportunity togther with my Friends Stavros and Filippos to photograph a Little Bustard.
The Bird used for his Migration Rest a field in the Buffer Zone Aera near Nicosia. A very rare Bird for Cyprus. A bird which is not often found in Cyprus, the last Little Bustard was recordet 34 years ago.
The light situations in the open Field at this Day time were not optimal for good photos, but the joy to see and photograph this rare bird have rocked.
Then, I was back in Paphos, came the sobering and extremly sad news in the late afternoon.
It has been fun for some Idiots / Pochers to shoot down this rare bird with a shotgun at close range. killed illegally by hunters in a no hunting area in the Buffer Zone near Geri / Nicosia. I am so angry and sad about this, I just can't believe it sometimes...
