Mishref Jogging Track, 18/04/2008

An early morning walk along the Mishref Jogging Track with wife in tow (but no bins, unfortunately, as I wasn’t expecting to be birdwatching) proved interesting. The birds were either along the track or immediately adjacent to it in the open area with trees between the jogging track and the Fahaheel Expressway / 6th Ring Road.

Common Quail 1 (walking along the jogging track), European Bee-eater 2, Masked Shrike 1, Isabelline Shrike 2, Common Redstart 6+, White-throated Robin 2, Rufous-tailed Scrub Robin 4+, Whinchat 3, Spotted Flycatcher 1, Barn Swallow 20+, House Martin 5+, Sand Martin 5+, Pallid Swift 5+, Tawny Pipit 2, Northern Wheatear 6+, Pied Wheatear 5+, Willow Warbler 1, Eurasian Sparrowhawk 1.
