Dubai Holiday, Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary & Dubai Pivot Fields November 24th 2008.











This was a place I had visited before, infact on my one day off each week, I would be here, there were three hides in total, sadly the best one named "Lagoon hide" is closed, too much development going on around it, after we went on to The Pivot fields a big lush green field (something of a novelty in a desert region!) with birds seemingly everywhere, never got chance to visit when I lived here, but wish I did! Marsh Harriers common at the sanctuary, Geater Spotted Eagle soaring high in the sky, one did fly high directly over the hide and at the Pivot Fields what I thought was another Marsh Harrier putting birds up, after putting the picture on my computer and consulting a field guide turned out to be a dark phase Montagu's Harrier.
