Some of the birders with Birdquest who visited the Saar roost today, although 12 Hypocolius were seen by the group close in flight the birds only settled in distant trees briefly to give scoping views before heading away to the southwest and what is assumed another roost.

Not great but a dramatic improvement

Today 17 Hypocolius observed at Saar most staying within the roost. The rubbish pile continues to grow at the site - its only a matter of time now before the whole site is lost.



Oh dear

A disastrous start to the season at the old Saar roost with only three Grey Hypocolius being seen to date at the site, we have no doubts that the seasonal and daily arrivals of the birds continues somewhere on the Island our problem is we can’t find them. I have check several locations without success at the BDF wadi the fruit on the thorn thickets has yet to ripen and a visit there yesterday yielded only one small warbler and a host of sparrows.
