Dubai 2013 - 15th March 2013

We leave the Mecure Hotel and the Chukkar Partridge to head to Zakher Pools on our way back to Dubai.


Zakher Pools is a large expanse of water within the sand dunes and a haven for birds. In a few hours we spotted 24 species here and 11 were added to the trip list. The new additions were as follows:

Glossy Ibis (6 birds present)
Shoveler
Citrine Wagtail
Greater Sandplover
Ferruginous Duck
Egyptian Goose
Wigeon
Knot
Water Pipit
Coot
Tufted Duck.

Citrine Wagtail was a new species for me and a bird I have longed too see. Our trip list had reached 108.
