Post details: Bright and breezy a good weekend


Bright and breezy a good weekend

Permalink 15:07:26, Categories: Observation by Howard  

After last weekends disaster when rain and gales stopped play it was good to get out and chase birds around the many puddles that last weeks storm left - nothing exceptional except four Bimaculated larks at Hamalah but good birding never the less. Saturday was restricted by road closures for the Triathalon so I concentrated on Busaiteen shorelines but with a low tide not the best time for photography but good numbers of wintering species seen.
