With so little suitable habitat in Bahrain some species, such as desert lark, are very resticted and always in danger of extirpation on the island. The jebel is the only site where you have a good chance of seeing them. I found just one pair after a brief search of the southern pavement on Saturday.

It can be diffciult to manage ringing, showing visitors around and photography all at the same time so it is a while since I took any reasonable photographs. Last weekend I made a concerted effort to get a few shots as I spread myself between the chicken farm, the hypocolius roost and various other sites. It is nice to just watch, enjoy and photograph birds sometimes.

This starling was on his own and obviously feeling the heat. I thought it was quite chilly!
