After many months of COVID hibernation, I finally managed to force myself to go look for some birds and headed towards Hameem Beach, Abu Dhabi, which is a good hot spot for Ospreys. Upon getting there, I found that the beach was closed due to a massive construction project. The best location to observe and photograph Ospreys is gone! maybe forever. I sincerely hope that this will not affect the birds because they usually stay on the opposite side of the Canal and would be relatively free to do their 'thing'.
However, the adjacent Khor Qirqishan area is still undisturbed and apart from the hundreds of fishermen, it is un-touhed. I was about to give up and head home when 3 beautiful Ospreys appeared in the far distance out of nowhere and I was relieved to see that they are still out there.
