Hawfinches and bullfinches


Today, to the cemetery.

In the big tree, two hawfinches and a siskin.

Again, quite some nuthatches.

Robin and greenfinch sound.

Two bullfinches; the first time that I have seen this species here.

A great spotted woodpecker makes a drumming sound with a tree branch.

Bahrain pro-democracy movement continues


This video says about itself:

Thousands of people in Bahrain have defied a government ban on public gatherings to mourn the death of a protester who was killed in Wednesday’s violence.

Meanwhile, authorities have demolished a statue in Pearl Roundabout, as part of its effort to crack down on anti-government protesters.

Al Jazeera’s special correspondent filed this report from Manama. (Mar 19, 2011)
