Pelagic - East Coast , UAE 17.9.10

Ventured on another Pelagic on Friday afternoon, finally the temperatures are starting to come down, barely touching 40c now at mid-day. At first birds were scarce, but after an hour or so we came across good numbers of fish and of course birds. I saw the largest number of Persian Shearwater so far , in excess of 150 ! We also had around 13 Brown Noddy and 500 Bridled Tern, many of which were first year. For me the highlight (as I haven't experienced them before) were a small group of 6 Red-necked Phalarope, a beautiful little bird !
