Whinchat (Saxicola rubetra)

Unlike its close relative, the Stonechat, a winter visitor to Cyprus, Whinchats are passage migrants and are relatively common throughout the island from late March to May and mid August to early November.

 

A little bit 'soft' but I quite like the composition featuring this smart male in its habitat near Peyia.
