I would like to be able to say that I took these photos but I didn’t. They were taken by Rebecca over the last day or so as she has been out birdwatching. The first two species are common enough – the Blue Rock Thrush and the Brown-eared Bulbul. The Blue Rock Thrush is typically seen on the coast but you don’t usually get close enough to see its plumage in this detail. The Bulbul is common and very vocal, often present in loose flocks and making load squawks.
The Varied Tit in the last photo is less common. This photo was taken in Halla Arboretum after a patient wait by a small pond.
