Red-footed Falcon in Paphos District

The Red-footed Falcon (Falco vespertinus), formerly western red-footed falcon, is a bird of prey. It belongs to the family Falconidae.


In the last week of April 2016, the Group Red-footed Falcon arrived back again in the wasteland between Agia Varvara and Anarita, Paphos district.


In this Group came an unexpected visitor to Cyprus,

the first Amur falcon.


The resting place in Area betwen Agia Varvara and Anarita is virtually treeless, so that the power lines are the main residence of the birds. Occasionally, they sit in the morning on dried-out Thistles. To eat, always go´s back to the power lines. About 9:00 am the are leaving the Place flying around to other places in wasteland for hunting.
