This used to be a difficult place to access but now there’s a nature trail here. You can just see a hide in front of the right-hand tree; this is often locked - it is mostly used by the nearby educational centre. Don’t worry, you can get the same view by standing next to the hide!

All the sites in this section are treated, in detail and with precise maps and directions, in my book ‘Finding Birds in Southern Cyprus’

If you have any information which you feel would help to update the book, please email me at and I’ll add your observations to these pages

Bishop’s Pool

Wednesday, 24 August 2011

Deep enough to remain wet even when other places are dry, this delightful place can have crakes, waders, herons and wildfowl although  in wetter years these birds go elsewhere. However, the insect life here attracts falcons and bee-eaters

If the water levels are as high as this, there may be little to see

The southern edge of the pool is the area most likely to have waterbirds as the margin here is shallow

The south-east corner usually affords the best view
