Dubai Pivots 3.10.10

Returned from cold Prague where I had been on a training course for a week,  so stayed local and went to my local spot at the Dubai pivot Fields.  Weather was very humid ,  roll on Winter !!   Apart from the usual suspects several migrants were around including 8 Temminck's Stints, 20+ Yellow Wagtails of various Ssp , 1 European Roller (Juve) , 2 Little Ringed Plover (Juve) and 3 Isabelline Wheatear but the highlight was a very nice migrant in a lovely Richard's Pipit .  Some images below,  more from this day can be seen at Pbase.
