  • After seeing so many Hume's, this bird was spotted this morning by my daughter Sarah. I had her on the lookout for a Hooded Wheatear as we drove through the wadi! It was hopping on and off the wall at the side of the road through the village. By now others have also seen it, so hopefully there should be a few more photos soon. Regards, Steve
  • I got a couple shots of this little guy below but I'm having a hard time identifying. Seems like a warbler of some kind. Seen flitting in the branches of acacia bushes picking small insects from the leaves. Photos don't quite show what seemed to be a fairly distinct bar across the eye. Thanks in advance for helping!
