I have fallen a little behind with post processing my backlog and posting to the Blog.
Earlier this month, I spent a quick hour at Sharq Harbour, but it was most of the usual winter suspects that were present when the Dhows came in with their catch.

The only wader seen was a Common Sandpiper which flew across the harbour entrance to forage on the breakwater.
