A juvenile common rosefinch (Carpodacus erythrinus) was seen by me today and later confirmed by Abdullah. I'm not sure how many previous records there are as Howard is still away. On our check list it is designated as "V" VAGRANT. Pictures and more at O&B with AJ.



A good day for Adrian - Indian Roller -

Today Adrian found an Indian Roller at Badaan Farm - this is the second record for Bahrain the first was way back in August 1996 when I found one at Dair north of the Airport that one stayed around until the December so hopefully this one should stay long enough for all to see.

Pictures by Adrian Drummond Hill - see O&B with AJ for further images
