Heavy thunderstorms and lightning Thursday evening, tempered the weekends expectations however disappointing Friday was Saturday more than made up for that with some excellent birding. Excess water in parts of the south restricted movement along some of the desert tracks so it proved impossible to fully check the south and east of the Island. One unusual observation was the massive number of Isabelline Shrikes that had moved in on our wintering birds habitat; where we had observed 2 or 3 wintering sometimes over a dozen birds this weekend occupied the same space, an amazing site.
Species of the weekend has to be the White-throated Robins 4 were seen at Buri alone.
Rufous-tailed Rock Thrush
