In my view one of the best birding destinations in Europe, but only during migration periods; relatively few species breed. You never know exactly what you'll see and it varies from week to week. Those species which do breed include the endemic Cyprus Warbler and Cyprus Pied Wheatear, also Eleanora's Falcon which can be watched on the same cliffs as Eurasian Griffon and Alpine Swift. Several species have endemic races, such as Coal Tit and Crossbill. Audouin's Gull breed in the Northern Turkish sector which is relatively underwatched, unfortunately it is not possible to visit both sectors in one trip. We did however see one or two in the South-east. Regular migrants include Larks, Wheatears, Warblers and Flycatchers, whilst rarities include Cream-coloured Courser, Caspian Plover, Blue-cheeked Bee-eater and Pygmy Cormorant. The only downside is of course the shooting prevalant in many Mediterranean countries, although we didn't encounter any.
