Despite the weather, I decided to go out yesterday. It did not turn out too bad as there were some nice birds around and the weather picked up a little later in the afternoon.
Barn swallow just about to regurgitate some undigested insect parts
Common quail sneaking through the undergrowth
I took these last week on a dull day after a storm. I don't think I'll get much today as it's very dusty and there's spots of rain.
Rufous-tailed rock thrush
Isabelline (Turkestan) shrike
I was in Bahrain on Thursday and Friday and for once the light wasn't too bad.
Lots of red-throated pipits around
Also lots of yellow wagtails of every sub species
