Quick post: We have a new fixer called Yassen who is great, speaks excellent English and has a fantastic sense of humour. He is teaching us about Islam and we're teaching him about Scotland, lingo and habits. There have been big dust storms so visibility has been poor, but very hot.

We haven't seen anymore Sociable lapwings but other good birds are around including sightings of the Iraq babbler.
