Despite wind and further rain showers the last few weeks have proved a bonaza for photographic opportunities to get to grips with some of Bahrains rarer migrant species. Top this up with a good mix of more regular passage migrants there have been some good birding opportunities.

Better weather this weekend brought a lot more species - most obvious were again Wheatear species, Woodchat Shrikes, Yellow Wagtails and Willow Warblers with Ruff, Wood Sandpipers and Glossy Ibis in good numbers around watering holes.
