Our trip to Oman has proven to be an exercise in sleep deprivation, with very early starts for travel to Oman and also hunting for the Omani Owl.
Yesterday had a boat trip to see some Sooty Falcons, fantastic birds, and a look around some cultivated fields that were rich in birds, particularly Bee-eaters and Rollers.
Today was a very early start to go into “Wadi Mac” hunting for the Omani Owl. We had no luck with that, but did get Pallid Scops Owl and a good few other cracking birds that specialise in the habitat. A stunning place to be half asleep. This afternoon we drove into the mountains, ready for tonight’s visit to another wadi in search of the owl.
