European Roller Khafrah Marsh – Bird Records by Jibin Jayan

While birding in Kafrah marsh on 30th April, Jibin Jayan with a friend Sahal came across a European Roller sitting on some fencing poles. They observed its activity and searched for more birds but found only the one photographed below. It was half an hour before sunrise and Jibin managed to get some excellent photographs, which are shown below and published with Jibin’s kind permission. This is not the first time Jibin has seen and photographed European Roller at this locality which is a good site for seeing them in April and May.
