World Migratory Bird Day - Family Birdwatching

Cyprus : World Migratory Bird Day - Family Birdwatching

To celebrate World Migratory Bird Day (WMBD) BirdLife Cyprus is organising two birdwatching outings for families, one at Athalassa Park and one at Oroklini Lake to introduce young and old to the wondrous world of migratory birds and birdwatching.

Join us either at Athalassa Park (Sunday, 21 May 2017) or Oroklini Lake (Sunday, 28 May 2017) to get to know some of the birds that have travelled thousands of kilometres either to rest here before continuing their journey further south or to make their nest and raise their young in Cyprus. Migratory species we may see include Barn Swallows, Common Swifts, Bee-eaters, Grey Herons, Little Egrets, Spur-winged Lapwings, Black-winged Stilts, Kingfishers, and many more!

During the outings, young and old will learn the ABC’s of birdwatching, enrich their knowledge about the natural world and, of course, enjoy birds! Each outing has 1.5 hour duration and is aimed at children ages 7 – 12 years old and their parents/guardians. Participation is free of charge. Put on your hats and sunscreen, keep your eyes and ears open, and let nature and birds work their magic!

The outings will take place on:
Sunday, 21 May 2017, 9:30 – 11:00, Athalassa Park, Nicosia
Sunday, 28 May 2017, 9:30 – 11:00, Oroklini Lake, Larnaca

All children are required to be accompanied by an adult. Pre-registration is required due to limited availability. For more information and to register please contact us on 22455072 or at elena.markitani@birdlifecyprus.org.cy
