On the last day of the year 2014 I again visited the Kingfisher at Ezousa pools.
Last week, I had cleaned the Middle of 3 pools slightly from Reed and Bush so that the Kingfisher and other winter guests have still open water area for the foraging.
In good light, I could do some good shots which I've attached in the small gallery.
Wish you all an Happy New Year
There are winter visitors from the world of the bird, you will find in Cyprus only in the mountains. So, I have been very often moved to the Troodos Mountains in the last four weeks and have visit different places to watch bird - winter guests and photographed.
Here, you can see also bird species, which live year-round in the Pine forests up there, some Cypriot subspecies such as the coal tit and the Crossbill. Also the Tree creeper is now easier to find, because this Bird looks also on the floor at the falling cones for feed.
It has become cold in the mountains. When I come in the early morning in the upper regions near Troodos the streets frosty white. Sometimes even snow. The puddles where the birds normally drink and bath are frozen most of the time.
In the last 2 weeks, I was with Dave Walker in various places to take pictures.
In the Troodos winter has caught up with us, but the Ezousas pools we have photographed interesting birds. Here are a few pictures.
I was on a sightseeing round at Asprokremmos Dam with my daughter and a friend of her.
I saw the Egytian Goose for the first time near Foinikas on the Dam shore and followed her with the Camera walking about 500 m until she flew off in the direction of the dam....
