Few but good birds

Permalink 00:18:12, Categories: Observation by Howard  

Over all a disappointing day with few species recorded although initially before getting anywhere special I found a Blue Rock thrush along side the main Highway. The farm areas around Jasra and Hamalah and the lake at Dumistan produced nothing new so as a last resort I tried Buri. After an initial unfruitful tour of quite an expansive area a rather attractive Stonechat caught my attention but no sooner had I stopped to line up for a photo luck smiled for there on the track was a Caspian Plover - so tame I was able to spend the next few hours happily snapping away as it wandered in and out of the vegetation and even into full frame view in the camera.
