- What’s On
The Black Sea still retains its mystique thousands of years after Xenophon’s men retreated towards it shouting, ‘The sea! the sea!’. A wildly hostile coastline, with hardly a harbour to speak of for a thousand kilometres, and the most astonishing of hinterlands. In the autumn of 2014 1.35 million birds of prey were counted in the Eastern Black Sea flyway: only four other sites in the world can count moree raptors. A picture story in Cornucopia 59.shows falconers and their sparrowhawks, a common site on the coast east of Rize. The Black Sea also has the bird paradise of wetlands: remarkable photos of the birds of the Kızılırmak Delta were the cover story on Cornucopia 57.
