The migration season ended with a bang going from feast to famine overnight. We now turn our attention to summer breeding species including terns, Kentish Plovers and Bushchats. What a surprise I got yesterday when I went to the Refinery Wadi and saw a pair of breeding Little Ringed Plovers with two chicks! I immediately alerted Howard and arranged to return with Abdulla in the afternoon to ring the chicks. This is a first breeding record for Little Ringed Plover in Bahrain and it was really nice to ring the two chicks to boot.
