‘To find out what’s about in Cyprus you can look on their website, call their BirdLine or just talk to any birders you meet. But you’ll probably be told that the best bird is at somewhere like Oroklini Marsh or Ayia Napa Sewage Works or Acheleia reeds or Anarita Park – places you’ve never heard of because they don’t feature in other books. However, all these sites, and many more, are described in detail in my book with clear maps to show you exactly where to og. I hope it’ll help you to find many more birds than you could without it’

  • Has a map on the inside cover which serves as
    an index so you can easily find any site in the book
