Jane if it were a big Hippo can you ask AJ how in the first place he thought it small enough to be considered a Graceful or Scrub Warbler - he is sure it was a small bird which Upchers is not.
Was out yesterday again here in Bahrain saw around a dozen olivaceous but didn't sadly see any further Upchers. We did manage to trap and ring seven species including A Nightjar, Nightingale, Garden and Reed Warbler and Spotted Flycatcher - I did have a good look at each any can say in all honesty AJ's bird was not amongst them.
