White-throated & Pied Kingfishers at Sabkhat Al Fasl - Bird records by Arnold Uy

Arnold went to Sabkhat Al Fasl with some of his photography friends trying to photograph Pied Kingfisher. He managed to take a number of good photographs of the Pied Kingfisher as well as one of the White-throated Kingfisher that I had told him I saw last week. They spent quite a lot of time getting good shots of the birds but their efforts were well rewarded and Arnold has very kindly sent me and allowed me to use some of his pictures. Arnold also wanted to photograph Greater Spotted Eagle but had less luck with this species as they were mainly flying around at some distance. As they stay around all winter there should be plenty of time to go back and try again. He did also manage to get a couple of nice photos of a Little Grebe eating a very large fish (for it at least).
