An interesting Afternoon

Permalink 11:58:42 pm, Categories: Observation by Howard  

On my way to Jasra after work I stopped to check out the Experimental Farm at Hamalah. Not many birds around in general but on my way out I stopped at one of the many water holes and noticed a White-tailed Plover across the other side some 50 meters away. It soon realised it was being watched and scurried off into the long grass, I waited for ten miniuts or so and fortunately the bird appeared again although distant it was in good light giving me a chance to take some record shots.
