Migration end

Permalink 03:54:52 pm, Categories: additional photos  

With the migration over we are now turning our attention to terns and Kentish Plover. Little terns are almost finished breeding but White-cheeked and Saunders' are just laying now. Plans are afoot to visit Al Jarrim islands on 18th June, Sheik Ebrahim island on the 25th June and hopefully to get access to Muntalla on the south west of the island again soon.
The best news this month however is Abdulla getting his C licence. He is the first in Bahrain and the middle east to get qualified under the British Trust for Ornithology ringing scheme and I expect he will advance to an A licence next year. Congratulations Abdulla!!!

The stonechats wintering in Bahrain are of the race 'maura'. They are up in siberia breeding by now!!
