Default Abu Dhabi, again, again!

You don't normally expect to see one of these at the end of your sun bed.



Also seen Little Green Bee Eater amongst all the usual suspects. Very few gulls around.

I only had my phone with me but here they are, no crop as they just get blurry and besides, it's a nice view.

It is a nice view Peter! How lovely to see not one but two Little green Bee-eaters! Have you seen them on previous holidays in Abu Dhabi?

Yes, a pair. I have seen them before and thanks to Ian got an ID. They look like shrikes at first glance but the colour makes them stand out anywhere.
