I did my my weekly trip to Al Abraq with Brian. Migration season is over and wintering birds are just arriving. No rarities were around yet. Even so it was enjoyable to watch birds there. One particularly tame juvenile Cuckoo was nice to photograph as well as a bit late European Roller. No Shikra was around just two Sparrowhawks were there
