15/03/2008 at Sulaibiya Pivot Fields

It was only possible to make a quick round of the Pivot Fields today. Bird-wise it was fairly quiet, although there seems to have been an influx of Tawny Pipits  in the last few days. Highlight of the trip was a  female Montagu’s Harrier that had caught some prey and could be carefully approached.
