In November 2002, Curt Johnsson, Klaus Malling Olsen, Pieter van der Luit and I visited the United Arab Emirates (UAE). We went birding in some well-known areas, in order to see as many of the bird specialties this country hosts. One week, however, was just fine to have a quick glance, but not more than that. There must still be a lot left, waiting to be discovered: even in 6 days of birding we saw several birds that are considered rare here....
During the birding we did here, I made some video recordings. The results are presented here as stills taken from these video tapes; just click at the thumbnails to obtain a larger image.

A detailed trip report will be available soon.
