Site summary
This site follows the open valley of the Diarizos River from near the river's source in Pafos forest to just before it spills into Pafos plain. This is a relatively remote and undeveloped area with a mixture of shrubland, pine woods and complex, low-intensity agricultural and grazing areas. It is an Endemic Bird Area with significant populations of the endemics, especially of the Cyprus Warbler, and it is of importance to birds of the open countryside like Rollers and Long-legged Buzzards.
