Wadi Bih 1.5.10

Went for a drive to the Hajar Mountains near Ras Al Khaimah in the UAE.  Went to find Trumpeter Finch, Ortolan Bunting and most importantly Chukar.  Managed to find a water pool with frequent visits from the Finch and Buntings along with nice Striolated Bunting.  Then on one of the mountain sides I heard the call of the Chukar,  this was followed by a scramble up the mountain side with the 500mm slung over my shoulder !

All the pics can be found under the UAE section of my Pbase account.
