Bird cemetery discovered in Cyprus
Participants of the CABS Bird Protection Camp in Cyprus have discovered hundreds of dead migratory birds on the coast south of Larnaca. In addition to dozens of bee-eaters, many swallows were found, as well as a night heron, a kestrel, a hoopoe and a European Roller. The birds were apparently shot down only as living targets - the entire area is littered with dead birds and shotgun shells. We have asked the police, who have so far been inactive, to start investigations.
