The Dirty Dubai Tour (Part two)

UAE offers a lot of good birding opportunities and in a Lexus filled with homemade sandwiches it's just heaven. Below you can see a few more pictures from our one-day trip in November 2011.
Khor al-Beida. This site is only 30 km from the Dubai City Centre and is one of the best places to see Crab Plover in the UAE.

We had fantastic views of this dream bird.

Another dream bird and again we had pretty good views ;-)
