Water Pipits then thee Small or Oriental Skylarks

Permalink 17:05:53, Categories: Bahrain Banding Project  

Brendan and the Girls had a good catch today of Water Pipits - good for the old training scheme allowing Brendan to relax and supervise - then in the whoosh net I had a small triumph. We have not been able to persuade many birds to enter the catching zone but today was the exception so along with some more Water Pipits I bagged three Skylarks - I was certain at least one was a Small or Oriental Skylark as happened on closer inspection all three turned out the same - a great catch our first here for the ringing project. One each for the ringers to handle.

Great birds from Abdulla

Permalink 17:09:08, Categories: Bahrain Banding Project  

Abdulla was busy this week and caught 2 new species for the ringing project. Unfortunately I was away in India and missed the action. He managed to get the photographs and hold the birds alone. Quite a feat for the long-legged buzzard.

Eversmann's Redstart, the first record this century!! last records relate to a small influx in 1990/91 of five birds.
