The birds are back

MAN_4678.JPG
Migratory birds, that flock to Bahrain in the winters, escaping from the freezing temperatures in Siberia and other colder regions of the world, are omnipresent everywhere in the country, especially in the coastal areas. This particular spot, at the so-called ‘dhow graveyard’ in Muharraq, is one that is most frequented by these winged visitors and this rotting dhow is a favourite ‘perching spot’ for them. Unfortunately, it was a crystal clear blue sky last evening when this photograph was taken so the real colour of the background is missing.

    Birds are sort of the welcome committee of spring! They arrive and you know spring is just around the corner!

    1. Here they are omnipresent in the winters. There’s no such thing as the ‘spring’ in Bahrain. It’s warm, hot and very hot! However, this time, it’s actually ‘cold’ in February (around 40F) and most locals call that ‘freezing.’
