Bad luck Friday

Permalink 12:13:59 pm, Categories: Bahrain Banding Project, additional photos  

We had a serious setback this morning with the loss of two 60ft nets at Ali Farm. Myself and Abdulla went there yesterday afternoon and erected four nets, two over the grassland to catch water pipits and two in the fruit trees in a regular ride. We left the site at 6.15pm after lamping larks for 30 minutes. I arrived this morning at 6.30am and discovered the theft.It is painfully obvious that leaving nets up even overnight is not an option. We have lost three nets there now which is a serious financial blow in addition to leaving us low in 60ft nets.
On a brighter note, the Marsh Harrier there has become quite tame, allowing me to approach him while feeding. I watched him gorging himself on a small passerine and then he picked this insect up for desert.

Water pipits and white wagtails are plentyful now also.
