Summer ringing

Permalink 10:35:17 pm, Categories: Bahrain Banding Project, additional photos  

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.

We also caught a nightjar west of Alba in the trees Abdulla has been ringing at for the past year.

This bird was oiled around the head and chest so we cleaned it up before release

A recently hatched Grey Francolin was also caught next to the net. It was far to small to ring but made a nice photograph
