27/12/2011 on Green Island and in few other sites
I had 4 German birders with me today. Michael Schulz, Jurgen Knec, Andre Dittmann and Anreas Kruger enjoyed of views of 4 Hypocolius as well as 3 Red-vented Bulbuls on Green Island this morning. Wintering Masked Shrike was nice to see too. Jahra Farms didn’t produce Shikra or Bank Myna yet but we had at least 3 Isabelline Shrikes, White-throated Kingfisher, male Barred Warbler and 4 Ring-necked Parakeets. Later on Sulaibikhat bay produced waders the most important being a flock of c. 100 Crab Plovers.
