Friday was very overcast and there weren't many birds around. The following are the only decent shots I got.

There have been lots more birds around lately and the weather has cooled considerably. Here's a selection of what I managed to photograph.

The weather has brightened up a bit, making it better for photography.

I took some eggs with me to Badaan Farm on Thursday. These two mongooses were thankful and posed nicely for me.

The Indian silverbills were very accommodating as well.

I was on the lookout for a desert warbler when this pied wheatear perched right at the side of me.

Believe it or not but I was watching a pied wheatear when this desert warbler landed near to me.

This is a new one for me, Yellow-fronted canary.

Yesterday was dull and windy so not much doing photography wise. What pictures I did get are below. Brendan with his two visiting ringers, Declan and Patrick had a first country record in the morning. They saw four black storks but the birds were very timid and took off on a thermal.
