Desert Ducks

There are some new man-made lakes that have recently been created to the South East of Dubai.

They are still a way from becoming established sites and for some reason the authorities have introduced feral species from around the world leading to strange sights of birds that would normally never co-exist !

It has already become a popular place for Walkers, Picknickers, Quad Bikers etc…. but nevertheless still provides good photo opportunities.

In this blog are pictures of wintering and at sunset, they are regularly flushed by passing 4x4s and so do provide nice images in the fading light of them arriving back at the lake.

I will be visiting on a regular basis over the coming weeks look forward (hopefully) to more opportunities to capture more species as the year goes on.
