Bad weather and only a few migrants birds

Permalink 15:23:43, Categories: Observation by Howard, Admin - Howard King  

The last few weeks we have expienced extended periods of high winds and bad visibilty due to dust. Add to this a shortage of new migrant species passing, birding in generally has been low key. A few Pied Wheatear where noted this weekend along with a lot more Chiffchaffs indicating that this situation should change soon. I spent a considerable ammount of time looking for a ringed Flamingo on Tubli Bay after Abdulla Kabi our local ringer spotted one at the sewage outfall at Tubli. Needless to say by the time I got there it had diasappeared amongst the thousand currently resident.

Desert Warbler one of my favourite species wintering species this one was found at Buhair
