A murky holiday

Permalink 06:16:07, Categories: Observation by Howard  

Sunday was a Holiday here but the light was affected by a sandy haze that has come to define much of the weather these days. Had only a few hours out at the Chicken Farm at Hamalah and the gardens at Buri. The number of migrant species is on the increase now with a good number of further firsts of the season for me to mix in with our wintering and resident species.
