Neil Tovey and I decided to return to Mutla'a at first light to see if the Sooty was still present, as it seemed to have disappeared late yesterday afternoon.
Hamad was also there and neither of us had any luck relocating the bird, so it was possibly a one-day bird.
We walked the farm, finding a female Whinchat
|Female Whinchat (Saxicola rubetra)|
|Female Northern Wheatear (Oenanthe oenanthe)|
|Garden Warbler (Sylvia borin)|
|Eastern Olivaceous Warbler (Iduna pallida)|
|Clouded Yellow (Colias croceus)|
More importantly, I have finally caught up my backlog and I hope not to get so far behind again - as it has taken a lot longer than I had anticipated to get up to date!
