Saudi Ringing

Permalink 03:19:14 pm, Categories: additional photos  

Last week Abdulla and I were in the south west of KSA in Raydah Reserve providing ringing training for Saudi Wildlife Commission Rangers. It was a fantastic opportunity to see some endemics of the region. The course participants were very committed and Mohammed Shobrak, who organised the programme, took some photos, see below.

Admiring the catch!

Brown woodland warbler , an endemic to Hawarat Mountain region of Yemen and Saudi

Yemen Linnet, another endemic

Yemen Thrush, endemic

Abyssinian White-eye, not an endemic but only found in Hawarat Mountains, Socotra and SW Oman within this region.
