Osprey at Achna dam

I saw one or two Ospreys at Achna dam during my recent visit to Cyprus and it remains one of the best places to see these migrating birds in Cyprus. I was hoping to get some fishing action shots but despite going there three times and watching these special raptors the fishing action I witnessed was too far away to photograph. The other issue with regard Achna dam is that it is now closed off for cars making wildlife photography more difficult however it may stop the number of fisherman coming to the dam and reduce the amount of rubbish they leave behind and also reduce the number of hunters who come to shoot the local and migrating birds.
