Didn't fancy travelling too far this morning so decided to go to Mamzar Park (between Dubai and Sharjah) with my friend Ahmed Al Ali. Temperatures around 35c took their toll and went home at lunchtime. Migrants have been few this year but I did manage to get some shots of a Common Redstart and a male White-Throated Robin, only seen females before ! A Reed Warbler and Ménétrie’s warbler (my first) were also seen but only poor photos - they weren't too keen to show themselves. First Arabian Babbler I had seen in the park too.
