Cape Greco

Wednesday, 24 August 2011

Cape Greco is the headland off the south-east corner of Cyprus – the part nearest to Israel – so it is always likely to be a hotspot for migrants including rarities.

The very tip of the headland, where the aerials are, is out of bounds but some terrific rarities have been found in the fields and bushes in the foreground. Park where those cars are and walk from there.

The sparse habitat around the seacaves is great for larks and wheatears
