    2 Wire-tailed Swallow's Near Green Mubazzarah at the Quarry, Al Ain, 14.03.2017.

    Hi all,
    Abraham and I, saw 2 wonderful Wire-tailed Swallow's at the Quarry, between Green Mubazzarah and the Cement Factory!
    One looked very blue and the other one was more brownish!
    The time was between 1 and 2 o'clock PM.
    Unfortunately, we couldn't get pictures!
    Cheers
    Peter.

    Hi all,
    I got some very bad pictures today from the Wire-tailed Swallows!
    The last picture is the 2. one!
    Cheers
    Peter.

    Hi all,
    fortunately, the 2 Wire-tailed Swallows was there today (19.03.2017), at 4:20 PM!
    Yesterday, I saw just the older one for about 30 seconds at 2:55 PM.
    Cheers
    Peter.

    Thanks for sharing Abraham!

    Hi Tommy,
    I do not really understand your question, "Any photos of the brown-capped one?"
    Do you mean the one without brow cap?
    That one?
