29/12/2008 at Kabd Reserve

A final trip to Kebd during 2008 was not very productive. The Black-crowned Sparrow-larks, very much in evidence just a few weeks earlier, had all vanished, no doubt foraging in other parts of the area than usual. Several wheatears (mainly Isabelline, one Desert) were around, and good views a single Dunn’s Lark were obtained. Several Corn Buntings were also noted, one of which was surprisingly tame.
