Getting warmer- wind beginning to subside

Permalink 17:10:12, Categories: Observation by Howard  

I started the day picking up an old friend Simon Wilson and we headed off to Busaiteen - an odd experience thousands of cricketers but very few birds - given that the tide was high there was nothing worthwhile on the shore. The waders are still here but today they were not roosting at Busaiteen. Still had a good time out with Simon visiting many old haunts but didn't think much of the Shisha joint we went to in Adaliya we have to blame Ali for that who we meet there.
