Egypt St Katherine’s Day 9

7th March 2020

At last I got to see Sinai Rosefinch, including tis male only a stones throw from the digs I was staying at.

So this morning I got up late, walked five minutes down road to Wadi Arabian and only a few meters in and flushed 6 Sinai Rosefinch, including a single male! It was as easy as that and I could see my digs from where the rosefinch were, sat on a roof. I decided to climb one of the south west mountains looking down on St Katherine’s after being told by someone that there were Almond Trees covering the slopes and beyond. After an hour I had made it to the top and counted 20 trees!! For my effort I did see more Sinai Rosefinch, Tristram’s Starling and the highlight, a single Bonnelli’s Eagle.

Started walking the entrance of Wadi arabian, hoping to be lucky with Sinai Rosefinch and kicked 6 birds that landed on top of the roof of the building in the photo above

I love to throw sticks at trees! I also can’t get enough of music! I also blog about my observations on Scilly and wherever I go around the world and what’s sometimes on my mind. I’ve visited over 30 countries and some more times than once. I’ve worked and volunteered in Nepal, USA, Peru, Gambia, Costa Rica, 3x Australia, and refugee camps in Palestine The profile image is one I took while in Palestine of a brave Israeli holding high the Palestinian flag in front of the Israeli Offensive Forces during protests in Belin
