30/04/2010 at Abraq Al Habari

Brian, Mike, Graham and myself visited Al Abraq this morning. Our highlights were: Shikra 1, Syke’s Warbler 1, Upcher’s Warbler 4, Basra Reed Warbler 1, Semi-collared Flycatcher 1 (possibly same bird that we saw on April 28th) and Desert Finch 4. In addition to this we had very late (uninjured) Song Thrush still around.
