  • I do apologise - I know this is not the UAE, but it is very close! I would be grateful if someone could identify this bird I saw in the acacia forest at Sall Ala near Khasab on Saturday. Both photos are of the same bird - the second one was in shadow. Many thanks, Steve
  • Hi everyone I am pleased to announce that verdicts are from the recent (Oct - Nov 2019) EBRC circulation have now been published in the usual place -i.e. at https://www.uaebirding.com/ebrc (and click on the Decisions link to download the excel file). Verdicts will also be published in the first volume of Sandgrouse for 2020, due in Feb-Mar. Thanks very much to everyone who contributed an RBR (or two, or more!) in the latest batch. The next circulation is due a little way into 2020 but please don't wait until then to send in your records - it has been a good November so far and there are several exciting birds that will need an RBR to be added to the official record. Forms available for downloading can be found at https://www.uaebirding.com/report and, for a well photographed bird, can be completed and sent in no more than 5 mins (although we enjoy reading any extra details you have as well - and sometimes they really help to set the context, or even seal the record). Please do this as soon as you conveniently can after finding an RBR species and don't wait for the next looming circulation. Thanks very much OSCAR (on behalf of EBRC)
  • After seeing so many Hume's, this bird was spotted this morning by my daughter Sarah. I had her on the lookout for a Hooded Wheatear as we drove through the wadi! It was hopping on and off the wall at the side of the road through the village. By now others have also seen it, so hopefully there should be a few more photos soon. Regards, Steve
