you will not believe, but I found your massage just two days ago, I still don't know many things from this website!
I think the chance is high to see a Barbary Falcon in our area between Green Mubazzarah and Cement-factory! I'm living there, so I see them often, I think the best time is between 8:00 and 10:00 AM. The best is, you give me a call when you like to go there! My mobile-no. 050-8142244.
Sorry to hear you didn't see the Jacana. I saw it a little after 8, when it was showing well, but a Peregrine disturbed everything and we couldn't relocate it for a while.
Yesterday I tried for Barbary Falcon, checking the walls and fences up to Jebel Hafeet, the top of the mountain and also the walls and fences near the cement works. I'm not sure what you mean by the "large hole" though. I had no luck, and I'm getting quite desperate to see one. There seems to be no one reliable site in the UAE where you have a good chance of seeing one.
Could you tell me again where you've been seeing them (you've had a number of sightings recently) - maybe with some Google Earth coordinates? Or perhaps it would be possible to meet up with you and try together, if you're going birding in the area?
Sorry to bother you like this, but I'm very keen to see one.
