Golf Club birds

Week 46 - 18 November 2011, Sahara Country Club

My son was enjoying his weekly golf lesson at this green golf course just off the 6th Ring Road and I inspected the water hole on the 18th..

A Great Reed Warbler was sitting quietly on a rock in the water, quickly catching and eating midges on the water surface

Great Reed Warbler (Acrocephalus arundinaceus)

I was surprised in seeing 3 species of Wagtail - the more common White Wagtail at this time of year
White Wagtail (Motacilla alba)
The dwindling numbers of Yellow Wagtailm, not sure of this s-sp - beema perhaps?

Yellow Wagtail (Motacilla flava)

and a surprise pair of Grey Wagtails

Grey Wagtail (Motacilla cinerea)
