Another pleasant day out and about. A Eurasian Stone-curlew or Thick-knees as it is also known, was seen and photographed at the farm the other day. Whilst I have seen this bird in Qatar I do not have an image of it. I tried to connect with it today, but without any luck. I did however, manage to get shots of two other birds previously seen. So all in all, not a bad result. This puts me on 164 ticked and 151 of them with images
A beautiful male Barred Warbler. A passage migrant species
A male Eurasian Blackcap. Another passage migrant
Lilith Owl on the look-out
A female Rufous-tailed Rock Thrush.
A pair of these Red-wattled Lapwings have been present for a while now. Today this one allowed me within range
This Rufous-tailed Scrub Robin was perched inside a thick bush, but would hop out every now and then to catch big black ants that were scurrying around on the ground
