In hindsight I should have gone out yesterday, but once you are up, you are sort of committed. As it was still dark when I left, the heavy clouds weren't that noticeable, but the lighter it got, the more apparent they became. Nevertheless, I pushed on to Al Abraq in the optimistic hope that something interesting might have arrived.
The gate was still closed, so I enjoyed the dramatic sunrise in this big sky country.

A very happy New Year to my family, friends, fellow birders and bloggers who have followed my birding stories on this Blog. I hope my posts have given a feel and insight for the avian life in this Land of Sand.
May 2014 be all that you wish for and more.....
