English (UK)   First pictures on my return  -  Categories: Bird Images (posts)  -  @ 08:53:25 pm

I came back last Wednesday night and went to Bahrain on Friday. Some of the birds seen are posted below, plus one from this evening in Al Khobar.




Lots of collared pratincoles were resting in the pool at the chicken farm.


A pair of wood sandpipers were at another part of the pool.

Tonight I went out in Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia to try out a new lens I've just bought. My luck was in with the first subject.


European roller.

I managed to get out once to Pennington Flash during my short trip home and here are the pictures.


Love on the rocks. These two grebes were at it right outside of the hide.


Angelic lapwing.


No trip to Pennington Flash would be complete without a shot of a bullfinch.

English (UK)   A very dull weekend  -  Categories: Bird Images (posts)  -  @ 10:15:28 am

It has been very dull and rained for a good part of this weekend. Although it brought in lots of birds, the conditions for photography were pretty dismal. Here are a couple of shots I did manage.
