Wildlife on the driving range

Week 49 - 10 December 2011, Sahara Golf Club

My son had his last golf lesson of the year and whilst he was perfecting his swing with all the clubs in his bag, I was a little distracted by some of the biodiversity on the driving range.

Overhead, in the early morning a few Pallid Swifts were slowly warming up in the cold, before departing to richer feeding areas

More amazingy were a pair of Arabian Red Foxes that strolled across the far end of the driving range, out of the reach of the few golfers who were getting warmed up for their games a little later.
