Reports on Illegal Bird Trapping
The campaign against illegal bird trapping is one of the key activities of BirdLife Cyprus. A systematic, continuous surveillance programme regarding illegal bird trapping in Cyprus was developed and implemented by BirdLife Cyprus and the RSPB (BirdLife in the UK) in consultation with the competent authorities, and has been ongoing since 2002. Thanks to this monitoring programme, BirdLife Cyprus has the longest record of field data and is able to deduce reliable long term trends and have an overview of the bird trapping situation.

Checklists & Reports
The monthly checklist is a monthly digital publication issued end of each month and includes a systematic list of species seen for the month passed, compiled from records received by our members, volunteers and other keen birders.
The yearly checklist is a quick reference guide to all bird species found in Cyprus with a table of monthly sightings for the year passed and yearly occurences for the previous two years. BirdLife Cyprus members receive it for free and is available for sale to non-members.
The annual bird report is a comprehensive and detailed publication of all the sightings in Cyprus in a particular year. It includes information for each species, locations sighted and any breeding evidence recorded.
Here you can view some of the informational leaflets that have been published by BirdLife Cyprus. These cover a wide range of our activities including campaigns and projects but also general information about birds, birdwatching and nature.
