A quiet return but rarities add spice

Permalink 15:43:12, Categories: Observation by Howard  

Returned from a washed out Christmas and New Year break in the UK to the much warmer climate of Bahrain even if at times it is a little breezy. Not a lot new around species wise but a few rarities did brighten things up.

While I was away a Linnet was found and photographed in Jid Ali by several people will put those in December obs while a male Chaffinch turned up at Hamalah to keep the female first seen there in December company.
