Warblers remain scarce but other species still passing through

Permalink 15:19:11, Categories: Observation by Howard  

These last two days we had a two day Holiday for Ashora so I spent one day in the desert areas around the Jebel with the other in and around the greener corners of the western side of the Island. Compared with previous years it remains quiet however most noticeable was the complete lack of warblers not a single bird was seen.

Blue-cheeked Bee-eater common throughout this period

White-crowned Black Wheatear now two on the Jebel - hopefully they will stay for some time and allow a closer approach
