There were some changes in the bird species but tonight I am writing about something that hasn't changed. A Persian wheatear was still there on the rocky land next to the western escarpment. Its possible to presume it was the same one as Tony and I saw. However, it could be another as I have seen three others this winter in other locations along Wadi Hanifah.

Nevertheless, short of having a ringed bird this comes closest to showing a Persian wheatear has spent all winter in Wadi Hanifah at the same location.

I'll blog tomorrow about the other birds I saw near the dam. One was another wintering bird from the same part of the world as the wheatear.
