Shall be away in the UK until mid January in the meantime a collection of images of Isabelline Wheatear taken between October and December this last autumn.
Still working around the Holiday had a few hours yesterday but many birds were just too distant for good photography but the most unusual sighting were of Red-rumped Swallows
Kentish Plover - nicely dressed ready for breeding
From other days out
Wryneck a bird that has been around some time but is rather camera shy
Hypocolius a regular around Jasra now
Thrush - a rather odd looking one the picture was taken through a chain link fence note the second one towards the back of the tree but am certain its a song thrush despite some received comments otherwise
Teal - a flock of 56 were seen at Tubli Bay sewage outlet
we have Ashura running into the National day holiday here - have to spend a fair amount of time working but in between I can dash out for a few hours birding each day.
Greater Sand Plovers
A Single Broad-billed Sandpiper among the Dunlin and Little Stints
Turnstone Ringed Plover and Greater Sand Plover
Not a lot around this morning other than mist which took a long time to clear
waterpipit - here in the wet grass - these winter mists provide a good supply of moisture for many species
Great Grey Shrike there is some debate as to which name we should use - Steppe, Saxual or Southern so take your pick
Greater Sand Plover - here in the first image a crassirostris looking very much like he's just come out of spec savers.
with a few Broad-billed Sandpipers
Back to the mundane after the excitement of the last few weeks - 140 plus Hypocolius observed today (see Hypocolius page for more info)
Desert Wheatear - competing with Isabelline for most commonly seen wheatear
Kingfisher - getting closer to a decent image at least I got him in the camera this time
