  16. <description>This weekend was really frustrating, the weather although drafty was OK and there was at least plenty to photograph with the migration really beginning to take hold but and it was a big but, nothing really wanted to play ball. If it could move before the final click it did. Working around driving hazards, wet and waterlogged ground and access ways brought the usually results a sticky end as expected but it was the nature of many an encounter that was odd. It appeared that the birds had other things on there minds unfortunately having a snapshot taken wasn't one of them.

  358. <description>The weather remains the big talking point here this week - with strong winds and temperatures dropping to around 5 or 6c add a wind chill factor of many more, its cold - no wonder that some animals and birds species  have become difficult to find.
  359.  
  360. Grey Hypocolius -- a solitary bird found one afternoon was a really lucky encounter and a great photographic opportunity
  361.  
  362.

  380.  
  381.  
  382.

  394.  
  395. Grey Francolin always around and easy to snap
  396.  
  397.  
  398. Grey Heron are normally difficult to approach - being huddled down out of the wind made the difference
  399.  
  400.

  427. All the photos that follow were taken at Adhari soon to be unnecessarily developed - lost as a wildlife sanctuary
  428. such stupidity should never have been allowed
  429. Greed and lack of appreciation from environmental agencies to Land owner
  430. of what could be are to blame

  568. <description>The windy weather continues almost unabated but with SSE winds assisting bird movement expectations for incoming species remains high however as expectations grow for migrant arrivals some wintering species such as the Hypocolius are just as likely to get up and move on.
  569.  
  570. Pied Kingfisher at Tubli mangrove at the sewage outfall - has been around sometime but this was the first time I managed to connect

  574.  
  575.  
  576.  
  577. Socotra Cormorant juvenile - so tame it allowed the close approach by one enthusiastic admirer who shared with it a packet of crisps -
  578. when the young lady left so did the bird - the whole thing was a remarkable episode to witness - such trust - the picture was taken with the kind permission of the young ladies parents who were watching close by.
  579.  
  580.  
  581. Northern Cormorant in complete contrast to local resident Socotra - the scourge of fish ponds and traps a Northern Cormorant (sinensis)
  582. having a bad hair day
  583.  
  584.  
  585. Curlew this time some from the shore
  586.  
  587.  
  588. Greater Sand Plover these all showing a lot of colour so early in the breeding cycle - Climate Change??
  589.  
  590.  
  591.  
  592.  
  593.  
  594.  
  595. Gull-billed Terns - one of my favourite species

  688. <description>Today felt cold, was hazy and dank yet temperature were still over 18c. However there was not that much around either and that which was played hard to get. It was just as well I had taken some pics in the week otherwise might not had enough pics to make the entry worthwhile. Having spent Christmas and New year in the UK tied to house and home, the urge to get out was well - some might say obsessive.

  828. <content:encoded><![CDATA[ <p>Today felt cold, was hazy and dank yet temperature were still over 18c. However there was not that much around either and that which was played hard to get. It was just as well I had taken some pics in the week otherwise might not had enough pics to make the entry worthwhile. Having spent Christmas and New year in the UK tied to house and home, the urge to get out was well - some might say obsessive.</p>
