Post details: New site down south


New site down south

Permalink 11:26:22 pm, Categories: Bahrain Banding Project, additional photos  

Abdulla discovered a new site with water and a few tamerisk trees down south near Ras Al Bar so we popped down this afternoon to see what was about. It is a small site with only a few birds at any one time but with no other trees or bushes within sight it is a real magnet for whatever is in the locality. Today we caught 6 birds, 2 orphean warblers, 1 juvenile barred warbler, 1 red-backed shrike, 1 lesser whitethroat and 1 olivaceous warbler. A nice variety for a couple of hours netting with just 1 18m net.
