The decompression stopover in Cyprus, albeit short, was a welcome break with the first introduction to alcohol in three months. A morning walk, with a hangover, around the inside of Bloodhound Camp found one Isabelline Wheatear, two Northern Wheatears, several House Sparrows, hundreds of European Bee-Eaters, several Chukar, one Whinchat, two Chiffchaffs and many Eleanorer's Falcons overhead.
Two Griffon Vultures, three Cyprus Warblers, one Cetti's Warbler, many Jackdaws, one Collared Dove and three Wood Pigeons were around Tunnel Beach. The journey to RAF Akrotiri saw three Red-Footed Falcons, one male, one Turtle Dove, several Hooded Crows and, on arrival at the airfield, a very obliging Cyprus Pied Wheatear was present at the terminal.
I am now back in the UK and have started the process of 'normalisation' by visiting the London Wetland Centre! The POSM process will continue with vigour on Thursday when I depart, along with CAOS members, to Texel. I look forward to seeing you all there.
