Post details: A pleasant weekend of migrants


A pleasant weekend of migrants

Permalink 14:43:26, Categories: Observation by Howard  

Having been out of action for two months it was nice to get back to my usual Bahrain weekend routine of birds birds and yet more birds. Managed to photograph most of the migrant species seen other than some elusive Chiffchaff but the best surprise was the number of Grey Hypocolius still around at Jasra - I counted over a hundred at first light around 6am on Friday morning.
