Having a chance to visit JEO  today during high tide provided me a nice views of Red Phalarope.  Other notable birds were c. 100 Red-necked Phalaropes 2 Cuckoos,  2 Glossy Ibises, 2 Lesser Grey Shrikes and  Greater Sandplover to mention just few.

    Are there many Khaliji birders? The only Kuwaiti, Qatari, and Emirati guys that I know only shoot birds…and not with a camera! I would be interested to know how you became a birder and photographer. Why don’t you post a biography about yourself?
