After quick visit to Jahra Farms, where we managed to see Shikra and Bank Mynas, we headed to Abdaly. At our arrival all Red-wattled Lapwings were flying and we got a new Highest Daily Count of 32 birds. Common Babblers were obviously very quiet for a long time. Finally we heard them calling and then it was much easier to find the birds. While searching Babblers Domininic found White-tailed Lapwing.

Red-wattled Lapwing 32, White-tailed Lapwing 1, Sparrowhawk 1, Isabelline Shrike 1, Southern Grey Shrike 1, Tawny Pipit 4, Common Babbler 4, Crested Lark 20, Stone Chat 2, Bluethroat 1, Collared Dove 50, Laughing Dove 10.
