Like this next shot taken on the Promanade only one good view to get a shot of this shy bird as soon as it heard the click it was gone, I think or from its description in the book its the Olivaceous Warbler Hippolais pallida,
The common bulbul I have Lots of photos on http://birdinginegypt.blogspot.com/2009/12/common-bulbul-pycnonotus-barbatus.html but this is the first photo with my 100x400 ef lens from about 50 ft.
While in the beer garden and feeding ourselves another Bulbul came within 10ft of where we where sitting and of course the lens had been put back in its holster for safety and the camera was fitted with the lens that came with the camera. It was set on for night shot. so we get these rather green blurred shots of the Bulbul who thinks that used cotton buds are the answer to his nest problem , the two shots are taken an hour apart so two buds had gone in the nest in the tree behind the bird. Tomorrow I will go back and get a shot of its nest to see what other parts this ingenious bird uses to make its nest.
