The following bird was trapped after being seen and photographed on several occassions in a ditch a Badaan Farm. We have withheld the ID as the measurements of the bird are were inconsistant with THAT expected.

2008 Starts wet windy and chilly

Permalink 11:49:57 pm, Categories: Bahrain Banding Project, additional photos  

Since our return from Christmas leave the weather has been largely wet windy and very cold. Temperatures have dropped as low as 5°c at night this last week considering apparent summer temperatures often exceed 55°c in August it’s no wonder our birdlife is feeling the effects of this cold spell. We have re-started the ringing program with a new species to the ringing list that of Skylark. However the bad weather and strong winds have restricted the catch to just a few birds; however we have now discovered a new site for ringing Grey Hypocolius a species that had largely eluded us this last autumn.
