A few bits and pieces in the UAE Part II

A few bits and pieces in the UAE Part II



Ajban farms is a favorite site of mine , located between Dubai and Abu Dhabi. It is a desert scrub area with large water lakes. Unfortunately the water is constantly being pumped into tankers for nearby constructions sites. Not sure how much longer there will be water there, once gone I am sure there will be a significant reduction in birds to be found in the area.
