At Paphos lighthouse today, five greater sand plovers in with a flock of around 50 golden plover. This is a regular wintering spot for the species. Also today, plenty of black redstarts, stonechats, Sardinian warblers and a possible Caspian gull.
Wow, what a plant! As good as any sand plover! Growing at the Tomb of the Kings, I'm pretty sure that this is Cyprus cyclamen, but I need to double check when I get home. Most specimens were long since over, but this one plant was still flowering. Edit: No it's not Cyprus cyclamen, it's actually Persian cyclamen (see Avakas gorge 12/12/14 and Baths of Aphrodite 15/12/14).
As far as I'm concerned, cyclamen are right up there with gentians, crocus and alpines. A class above everything else!
