No White-collared Kingfisher were seen, but we did record Curlew, Sooty Gull, Gull-billed Tern and Striated Heron.
After leaving, Kor Kalba we stopped further along to shore opposite a large sand bank. Before scanning with the telescope we could see a large flock of gulls roosting, but again once we looked carefully the hidden gems appeared.
Lesser Crested Tern
The Swift Tern and Armenian Gull were lifer species for me.
We closed the day on 80 species and headed to our hotel called Nour Arjaan. As I watched the light drop from the hotel window I noticed a city roost of approximately 500 Common Myna birds in the trees and on the window ledges around a mobile communications building down the road. Birds flew in from across the city rooftops heading for a favoured tree or branch. After a few moments of jostling when accepting a new arrival, the birds settled again and calm was restored. Local people walked past the building possibly unaware of sleeping Myna's as the street lights shone brighter and the night time started.
