A visit to Kabul for three days provided the opportunity to see two new species; Laughing Dove and Pied Bushchat which both appear to be breeding at the BRITFOR NSE along with Barn Swallow, Tree and House Sparrow. A drive around Kabul (not recommended) saw Crested Lark, Crag Martin, Black-billed Magpie, Common Myna, Crested Lark and Palm Dove. The British Embassy compound (an oasis) was disapointing despite the tree cover and foliage.
I depart back to the desert and the increasing heat in the next few hours.
BIRDGUIDES has an article re Birding on the Battlefield. A lady is requesting anyone who has persued the hobby whilst deployed to contact her. I've contacted her and pointed her in the direction of the AOS web Page.
