Visit to Pivot Fields this morning produced few new migrants. Especially interesting was to see two Caspian Plovers which were found by Rashed and Mahmoud. Northern Wheatears as well as Pied Wheatears are already relatively common. Numbers of Blue-cheeked Bee-eaters have gone up significantly. Spring migrants keep coming but weather is still pretty cold.

Northern Wheatear Oenanthe oenanthe دُرْجَةٌ شَمَالِيَّةٌ
Great Grey Shrike Lanius excubitor lahotra صُرَدٌ مَاوْرِيٌّ
