Autumn Bird Migration Celebration

Autumn Bird Migration Celebration

Cyprus is one of the main roads that migratory birds pass - you will see and observe many species of birds and many other entertaining activities!

Athalassa National Forest Park will host the 'Autumn Bird Migration Day' at the birdwatcher and the picnic tables next to the park's southern parking lot (entrance from Latsia).

At this event you will see and observe many species of birds, from the smallest to the largest.

This event is due to the beautiful natural scenery of the migration of birds, that they leave Europe when the winter starts to move to warmer places, to Africa. Cyprus is one of the main roads that migratory birds pass and now that it is autumn it is the perfect time to see this beautiful sight, the birds passing through our island.

09:00 - 10:00
Bird Ring Demonstration: During the demonstration, participants will have the unique opportunity to see different species of birds ring and being released back into nature.
