Join our ever popular guide Dr Yiannis Christofides for a brand new butterfly tour in his ‘local patch’ of Cyprus!
Cyprus hosts a number of interesting butterfly species difficult to see elsewhere, as well as the iconic endemic Paphos Blue. Early June has been chosen to maximise the number of species to be seen. Paphos Blue is an early butterfly on the wing from March to June, whilst the Levantine Leopard is a later species appearing in June. It this thus hoped to see both of these species, as well as many others on the wing at this time.
Whilst our main targets will be the Cyprus butterflies we shall also aim to see some of the islands other interesting fauna, including the endemic Cyprus Wheatear and Cyprus warbler, as well as some of its plants and dragonflies.
