English (IE)   Birds beginning to re-appear  -  Categories: Bahrain obs by BK  -  @ 03:10:35 pm

With the ringing at a stand still due to the intense heat, I have had a little more time to bird watch. Interesting things are turning up now as the autumn migration is cranking up again. Below are a few shots of the weekend. I took a friend out with me on Saturday and we spotted an avocet, a new species for me though not for Bahrain.

This Egyptian nightjar was really suffering in the heat.
