Another trip to the chicken farm was a bit disappointing for species counts but I managed some interesting pictures.




Siberian stonechat. Possibly the same bird as last week.

Back to the chicken farm to see what's about.




The first thing I saw was this Asian desert warbler


There were lots of skylarks in the undergrowth and fortunately this one stayed still long enough for a picture.


I was fortunate to spot this Siberian stonechat in a perfect pose.


There are still lots of water pipits around.

Just a quick trip to the chicken farm on Friday.




Curlew




I've tied this bird down to a northern or southern bishop, female or non-breeding. If anyone can provide a positive ID I'd be grateful.

Lots of birds around this Friday and I managed to get a close up of a desert wheatear which was my aim of the day.
