Al Zora Shoreline and Mangrove 8.4.10
Ventured over to Al Zora in Ajman on Saturday. I had never visited this area before, my good friend Ahmed showed me the location. We had gone to try to get some shots of Lesser Crested Tern and Sandwich Tern which had appeared in some numbers. Fortunately our early morning visit concided with the fishermen bringing in their nets....it was very comical watching the Socotra Cormorants being brave enough to steal fish from the guys despite the best efforts of the fishermen to scare them away ! Some pics attached but as always full catalog of images in my Pbase account. Nice views of several Yellow-Spotted Agamas were achieved near the mangrove area.
