Nizzana - sand storm

This was my penultimate visit to a Nizzana atlas box for the season. Weather and light were quite terrible and I was dead tired, so couldn't bother with photography.
Had the usual stuff - all four sandgrouse, CCC's, and the ordianry selection of common breeders. Still quite a few Hill Sparrows around, probably going into their second breeding cycle. This is quite amazing for this region, for birds to begin a breeding cycle in late May! This must happen only once or twice a century.
