The morning was spent on Paphos headlands, a famous archaeological spot that can also be very rewarding for birding, but more so during spring migration. Not many birds were around but it was great to see (our only) Roller, probably a migrating bird. There were some short-toed larks present but they never showed good enough for identification and I’m not familiar with their call to identify them flying.
This morning the first clouds of our visit started to appear and grew to become thunderclouds. During the day the wind grew stronger. While driving back to our apartment a flock of 12 Honey-buzzards seemed to have arrived on the island just then. During the night we had our first bit of rain.
