I'm visiting Marjan, Al Jazirah on family vacation 12-20 April, located about 30 km southwest of Ras al-Khaimah.
I'm planning to explore the nearby surroundings in the morning on foot/taxi, but would love to go for "real" birding half or full days, either with a guide (but seems difficult to find one?) or team up with a fellow visiting birder? I'm limited in not having a drivers license, but will of course happily share expenses!
My dream targets are species like Striolated Bunting, Sand Partridge, Lichtenstein's Sandgrouse, Black-crowned Sparrow-Lark, White-tailed Lapwing, Pallid Scops Owl, Pharaoh Eagle-Owl, Caspian Plover
My highly unrealistic dream target is Grey Hypocolius.
These I hope to find near the hotel: Socotra Cormorant, Arabian Green Bee-eater, Delicate Prinia, Arabian Babbler, Menetries's Warbler, White-cheeked Tern, Asian Desert Warbler, Upcher's Warbler
