Male and female Common Chaffinch in Bahrain – Birds records by Jehad Alammadi

Jehad Alammadi found a female Chaffinch on 11 December 2015 in the Hamala area of Bahrain and was able photograph her on 16 December 2015. After another seventeen days he was also able to photograph a male in the same area of Hamala and on 9 January 2016 he photograph the male and female together. Common Chaffinch is a rare winter visitor to Bahrain and these two birds together are a very good record. I thank Jehad for sending me the details and for allowing me to use his photographs on my website which are reproduced below.
