Very Hot but waders already returning

Permalink 08:37:02, Categories: Observation by Howard  

Spent most of Friday morning out along the shores of Maharraq with Chris Moorey - checking for breeding terns and returning waders.

Greater Sand Plover and local breeding residents; Saunders's Terns and the Kentish Plover dominated the species seen on the shore however Lesser Sand Plover and Redshank were noted in smaller numbers along with a few locally breeding white-cheeked Terns and Western Reef Herons. A solitary Socotra Cormorant and a few Grey Herons added to the tally.

A quick stop at the National museum and its garden turned up a Clamorous Reed Warbler of all things otherwise a pleasant but quiet morning.
