I spent a morning down at Sabah Al Ahmad Sea City in the oldest part of the project exploring the pristine lagoons and each of the 4 small islands.
Interestingly, very few passerines were seen, but I did photograph a few of the many large Dragonflies seen on the islands. I believe this is the male, but not sure of the species - however one of my readers has suggested that it could be Vagrant Emperor (Anax ephippiger), so I will go with this identification.
|Male Vagrant Emperor (Anax ephippiger)|
|Female Vagrant Emperor (Anax ephippiger)|
|Caspian Gull (Larus cachinnans)|
|Male Great Cormorant (Phalacrocorax carbo)|
|Early Marsh Sandpiper (Tringa stagnatilis)|
|Ruff (Philomachus pugnax)|
