still around

Permalink 06:12:25 pm, Categories: How to get to site  

The Saar Site produced 8 Hypocolius last night and the BDF wadi 14 in trees near the main highway flyover intersection. Jasra has gone quiet with only the odd one or 2 being seen there on a regular basis.Budaiya Argriculture Gardens had over 20 on two days this last week -- all in all I think the birds are well scattered across the island and could be observed almost anywhere at the moment.



Disappearing act

Permalink 06:30:23 am, Categories: How to get to site  

The Hypocolius have largely done a disappearing act around Jasra a check on this site yielded only a single bird this week. A small flock was seen in Budaiya (NE Bahrain) near the Ministry of Agriculture Gardens on Monday by a friend so the birds are still around but following the food. Any visitors to Bahrain will therefore have to check all the sites we list to find them.
