Forty three species at the waste water site

Yesterday I went to the waste water site again. It is my "local" patch these days since the demise of F-Nord lake. The lake was pumped dry by overzealous city planners and a large fresh water magnet for birds was lost in a city in the semi-desert.

North Nouakchott waste water site does its best. Yesterday was a good day.

  • No fewer than ten types of warbler were seen:
    Western Bonelli's Warbler, Willow Warbler, Common Chiffchaff, Western Olivaceous Warbler, Melodious Warbler, Sedge Warbler, Eurasian Reed Warbler, Common Grasshopper Warbler, Western Orphean Warbler, Spectacled Warbler. All are migrants.
  • Other migrants included roller, nightingale, rufous bush-robin and  European turtle dove
  • Three different sedge warbler were photographed near each other.
  • A grasshopper warbler shown about 20 metres from where I saw one two weeks earlier
  • One of the European reed warbler felt so secure it was asleep during daylight. This presumed after a long migratory flight.

  5. Hello your post is very helpful, thanks for wonderful information sharing. When you go about Find information & tips on The News Gossip.

    Has anyone here heard about blank ATM card? An ATM card that allows you to withdraw cash from any ATM machine in the world. No name required, no address required and no bank account required. The ATM card is already programmed to dispense cash from any ATM machine worldwide. I heard about this ATM card online but at first i didn't pay attention to it because everything seems too good to be true, but i was convinced & shocked when my friend at my place of work got the card from guarantee ATM card vendor. We both went to the ATM machine center and confirmed it really works, without delay i gave it a go. Ever since then I’ve been withdrawing $1,500 to $5000 daily from the blank ATM card & this card has really changed my life financially. I just bought an expensive car and am planning to get a house.

However , only a bank statement won’t be enough for your car loan to be easily approved by the lender . Even though it is very possible to loan a car using only a bank statement.

I worked with SPYHOST CYBER SECURITY COMPANY, and they were so helpful and supportive, and in the end, it took a 24hrs , I got almost all of the money back. It wouldn't have been possible for me to meet up economically because I almost invested all my money but all thanks to Spyhost cyber service with their genius effort to help me recover my already stolen currency.Incase you are a victim of such predicament Please ensure also to reach out to them for help via email: (
