St Davids Day - March 1st

Permalink 01:14:33 pm, Categories: Bahrain Banding Project  

After a week of unsettled and blustery weather we finally managed to get out to the Hypocolius roost at Saar. Well over forty Hypocolius arrived at the site between 16.15 and 17.30 hrs but as usual they proved very difflicult to pin down so we considered ourselves lucky to catch one bird, a male


At the site I was surprised to find a Kentish Plover nest with two egg - in the middle of open ground the bird could not have chosen a worse site - Its chances of a successful season are slight
