Birding Tanoumah

Whilst birding the Tanoumah area in the western mountains we saw a good number of Grey-headed Kingfisher. There had been plenty of rain so the birds were making the most of the new wet areas formed. A single Short-toed Snake Eagle was seen flying over and four Arabain Magpie were seen feeding and calling to each other. Several White-throated Robin were on passage and small groups of Arabian Babbler were seen. A few different pairs of Streaked Scrub Warbler were located as were small numbers of Yemen Thrush, Dusky Turtle Dove, dark phase Long-legged Buzzard, Palestine Sunbird and Yemen Serin.
