September 2018 - Honey buzzards during bird migration

Around the Akrotiri Salt Lake in September, in the morning hours, large groups of Honey buzzards to be seen, which came from here sleeping places surrounding mountains in Limassol area to the meeting points around the Akrotiri Salt Lake.


There, the buzzards start to use with rising temperatures the forming thermals over the Akrotiri marsh region with their circular glides and rise to high altitudes. 


Groups around the 100-200 buzzards are not a rarity.


Once you have reached the ideal starting altitude, start your next flight to the nearest destination on your trip to the south.

But also many other bird species, e.g. bee-eaters and Stranglers have arrived on the migration in this area, many also to spend the winter here in Cyprus. Here are some pictures and later a video.
