Adhari drains

Permalink 07:16:08 pm, Categories: Native species  

A very severe cleanout of the freshwater drains at Adhari was undertaken by the Municipality recently. It was so extensive and sudden that one could be forgiven for expecting nothing to survive. I (Brendan) popped down there on Saturday afternoon while the local soccer teams were busy nearby and spotted a few frogs and Terrapins which will hopefully spawn the next generation for the drains. That's assuming the little egrets and night herons don't get the last of them!!

Snakes Alive

(Post by Brendan) I finally saw my first live snake in Bahrain last week after 5 years. Abdulla identified it as a rat snake and tells me the Arab name translates as 'swift snake' as it moves so fast. BK
