Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean covering an area of 9250 km2 and lies on one of the major bird migration routes across the Mediterranean. With Africa to the south, Turkey and central Europe to the north and Syria and the Middle East to the east, Cyprus is a major staging post used twice a year as birds move between Africa, Europe and Eurasia.
A popular overwinter destination for one of these migrators is the Larnaka salt lake, where on average 1000 – 2000 flamingo are recorded every year (some years have seen up to 7000!). Find out the history of this lake, and why it is a great spot for these fascinating birds, HERE.
