A hot return

Permalink 06:46:47 pm, Categories: Observation by Howard  

Returned to Bahrain late on Friday I did manage a few hours out on Saturday afternoon - following on AJ'S advice I went to the Chicken farm at Dumistan - lot of birds there - the Collared Pratincoles in particular but viewing in the afternoon is difficult as you have to look straight into the sun however I did take a few pictures of varying quality
