Birding through SUSAT

Postby chrisdickey » Mon Feb 16, 2009 6:22 am

Hello All,

With the winter now over, which involved flash flooding and a drop in temperature, the ground is lush with grass and insects. Therefore, I have seen some species migrating north including swallows, gulls and flocks of little brown jobs, which I can not possitively identify. I have also seen Chukar a type of partridge I think and it was very close so that one was a definate PID!

I am off to Roshan Tower in days few, which is a communications tower on the edge of a high plateau. Hopefully I'll see more birds of prey soaring on the thermals as I have done around Mt. Doom. It will also be a great place to spot migrating birds flying north up the Musa Qaleh wadi, so watch this space!!!

Regards to all,

29 Cdo Extreme Birding.

Chris, am sorry the ski season has passed you by but delighted that you are getting around to see the sights as a good tourist should. I hope the thermals are of the soaring kind and not the chafing kind,
take care,
Lin + Duncan :D
