Flamingos

Gulseren lake, near Famagusta, became a rest point for flamingos. More than 50 birds temporarily use the lake to take a rest during the spring migration. Every year in mid-April various bird species can be seen in North Cyprus as they migrate from Africa to Europe. Wildlife expert, Robert Snape, said: “Every year, thousands of birds fly over Cyprus. You can see birds such as merlin, night heron, cuckoo, pallid and many other representatives of wildlife. ”
Unlike other bird species, flamingos do not have a special migration pattern, instead, they fly around high up in the sky to search for favourable places to land. Famagusta’s small lake Gülseren is one of these. There is a field near the lake where you can park your car to watch the pink birds. If you are lucky they are close to the beach, but to get a good look at them, it’s best to bring a binoculars.
