Akhna Dam

Wednesday, 24 August 2011

This is one of the largest wetlands on Cyprus. For many years it has been largely dry but this has led to the creation of several pools that have been even better for ducks, herons and waders. In 2010 it was practically full of water and relatively unproductive.

The view from near the dam in April 2010. Usually this area is dry apart from several smaller pools
