Catch of the day

Permalink 06:33:24 pm, Categories: Bahrain Banding Project, additional photos  

This afternoon turned out to be a red letter day with the capture and ringing of a Sociable Lapwing. This is an endangered species and very little is known of their migration route in autumn. We saw 3 birds in Bahrain last autumn and now two juveniles this year so far. A ringed bird could shed light on the species movements.For more information on the Birdlife International Conservation Project go to http://www.birdlife.org/sociable-lapwing/2010/11/adventurers-arrive-in-the-gulf/
