First day out this year

Brendan and I spent a pleasant few hours checking out potential ringing sites around the northern part of Bahrain to see how the recent rains have affected wintering birds - not a great deal to report in terms of variety of species seen but we did note large numbers of Skylarks and Pipits at several previously seldom visited sites making them worthy of future visits.
