Post details: Camera



Permalink 09:30:56, Categories: Observation by Howard  

Had a problem with my camera this week my 5000mm ate some dust and jammed the focus. Will add more pics during the week if I get it fixed hopefully my friend in Ashrafs will succeed.

The migration continues unabated Willow Barred and White-throats warblers being the most numerous species seen. Lots of Swallows Bee-eaters and an occasional Martin passing overhead with Red-Backed and Lesser Grey Shrikes, Northern Wheatears and still White-throated Robins to be found in the deserts and scrub areas down south. In the gardens Bush-chats, yellow wags and Red-throated pipits are now everywhere.

I meet with Abdulla Wednesday afternoon to view some Hoopoe Chicks in a nest at Hamalah only to find the nest had been raided and the chicks taken. No doubt if the chicks survive more than a day or so they will end up being sold in the nearest local market at Hamad Town for a few dinars.
