It was nice to see old friend, Indian Roller, which I farewelled in last May before going for summer holidays. Originally the bird was found by Rashed Al Hajji on 10th. October 2008 and it has stayed ever since making, frankly speaking, many visitors very happy. Let’s hope that this will continue at least till next spring. Other birds around were: Bank Myna 12, Citrine Wagtail 1, Yellow Wagtail 6, White-throated Kingfisher 1, Hoopoe 1, Olivaceous Warbler 1, Garden Warbler 1, Whitethroat 2, Lesser Whitethroat 1, Barred Warbler 1, Spotted Flycatcher 1, Golden Oriole 3, White-cheeked Bulbul 5.
