We all managed to view Hypocolius today - in all two flocks 40 plus in Jasra and 40 in flight seen at Hamalah were this mornings counts - this evening over 130 were seen to drop in at Jasra although many were seen to move to the SE later on




Day count over 140 - Backside Jasra

Had started my day at Adhari chasing Kingfishers but with no luck - so decided to go to Jasra on the way Brendan telephoned to say he already had 60 Hypocolius, they had moved out by the time I arrived so we hung around til nine and clocked another 21 arriving in the same area plus a large numbers of Song Thrushes. Brendan went off to play a round of golf and I returned at 2-45 in the afternoon to see if any returned over sixty did. We think the area is more a staging post than a roost which seems to be itself behind the walls of one of the VIP gardens in the area.
