03/12/2012 on Green Island, at Jahra Pool Reserve and at Doha Spit

I visited with a British group Green Island this morning. When it was difficult to see a Hypocolius last winter now it was really easy. We had already seen 10+ at Jahra farms and this morning on Green Island 25+.  Photographing is not so easy though. On Green Island we observed also Red-vented Bulbuls and a male Ruppel’s Weaver. At Jahra Pool Reserve we had two Citrine Wagtails. At Doha Spit our main target was Asian Desert Warbler which we saw eventually.
