Al Shaheed Park 19-20 and 24-25.11.2017

I have now visited Al Shaheed Park four times and I’m more and more convinced that it is truly great park. 6 Sylvia species this time of the year! Similarly Daurian, Masked and Red-backed Shrikes. I have also seen Bank Myna and 2 Red-vented Bulbuls. Nightingale, Rufous-tailed Bush Robin and European Nightjar tell something about the place. Others have seen Indian Silverbill too.
