Zakaki pool

Wednesday, 24 August 2011

An extensive wetland area, especially important for wildfowl including Ferruginous Duck

Scan into the reeds for birds such as Moustached Warbler, Little Crake and Little Bittern

The only way to view the site is to scan from the rather busy road

The road behind Ladies Mile Beach takes you along the eastern edge of Akrotiri salt lake, passing roadside pools that can be terrific for waders. Limassol is in the background. Behind the cyclists are the cranes of the port area next to Zakaki pool.
