Anyone doing Foot It?
The alcohol would need to be in me if I was to go anywhere near that mother.
Yep, resident at Abu Nakla sewage lake.
High winter counts of 250.
OK so I'm back in the saddle and spent the morning with Simon Tull (ex Muscat) who kindly showed me a couple of prime spots in Qatar.
First we went down to Irakhya Farms about 45 kms SE of Doha....
I bid fair-well to the magic kingdom last month and will be based in Qatar from now on working on Festival City, Doha. All my gear's in storage so I don't have optics yet but when I do I'll be...
It's a juv snake-tailed fringe toed lizard.
But its all a bit quiet on my other posts. Isabelline wheatear? BE wheatear? (any race?) BN raven (I assume it can't be called as common from the photo?)
Maybe they're flying squirrels?
Weekend in Tabuk. My numbering seems out of sync... roost of 2,200 black-eared kite the weekends highlight.
220 - Montagu's harrier.
221 - Wood warbler.
222 - Corn bunting.
223 - Black-eared...
I got a fairly good shot of a juv OHB here.
Any ideas? It waved its reddish tail from side to side. A fringe-toed type? Tabuk in the far north near Jordan.

As Ahmed says, UAE to hold forum on shark conservation.
Edit: Just seen the location.
Pin-tailed sandgrouse is a distinct possibility. I've seen flocks of 200 or more there.
I'm told... m banded groundling, imm m broad scarlet, m banded groundling, imm m violet dropwing.
Not much at Ha'ir yesterday. 3 sp. bee-eater and my first european roller the pick of the day.
218. European roller.
The groundlings are both male I think. Although I have some shots of females.
Went to Jizan for the weekend, got some decent photos and five KSA ticks plus better views of white-browed coucal...
213. Greater sandplover.
214. White-throated bee-eater.
215. Arabian golden...
Me again... my guesses are in the file names. All from a lake at about 200m altitude inland from Jizan in southern KSA.
Check they weren't whimbrel. More likely at Safa.
