Flickr resources on Libyan birds

The Libyan bird watching community continues to expand and there is more birding and research now than at any time in the past generation. I am a relative newcomer. One who is longer standing is Abdulmaula Hamza. He is a senior person in the Libyan Environment General Authority and is a true expert on Libya's special bird, the lesser crested tern. He is currently completing a PhD on the tern at Hull University in the UK. 

He keeps a flickr account with several pictures of Libyan birds which I enjoy viewing. My personal favourite is the flock of glossy ibis. This bird is not common in Libya but 40 or so winter at Taourgha Springs every year. I have added a link to this flickr resource at the side of my blog. Please take a look!
