Finally the sun came out today and everything seemed so fresh and clean along with a clear blue sky with no suspended dust in the air.
I tried to get into the Pivot Fields, but the road on the way too and at the gate entrance were still flooded and too deep to traverse, so decided to go to Shaheed Park for a walk.
I wasn't the only one and the park was pumping with walkers enjoying the bright sunshine. This was mostly a Shrike morning, with a couple of Turkestan/Daurian
|Possible Turkestan Shrike (Lanius phoenicuroides)|
|Daurian Shrike (Lanius isabellinus)|
|Masked Shrike (Lanius nubicus)|
And a Red-backed
|Red-backed Shrike (Lanius collurio)|
The female Eurasian Blackcap was the odd lady out...
|Eurasian Blackcap (Sylvia atricapilla)|
