Have not had a great deal of time to bird this month, but then again the month has been really disappointing - where are the birds well at least certain species like Golden Oriole - the answer probably hunted to virtual extinction as far as we are concerned by rampant shooting in Saudi and Kuwait. Not a single Marsh, Garden or Savi's Warbler either when in the past they have been so numerous climate change or what something is affecting the normal flow. I can only hope for a more productive return later in the year.
Roller ONE OF ONE SEEN
Spotted Flycatcher one species that was more numerous than in other years this one in my Garden
Willow Warbler numbers steady
Red-backed Shrike a long stayer this one has been at Hamalah nearly a month GOOD NUMBERS too probably since it passes late after the hunting season has largely finished due to the heat - there is minimal hunting of birds in Bahrain Kestrels and a few casual birds only make the pet shops - still pushing for this to be stopped
Socotra Cormorants plenty of action though from resident birds at sea
Out on the fish traps plenty of action to watch thankfully
some late birds passing were a solitary Kestrel
and a Swallow
