Al Mehfar Park near Tanoumah – Bird records by Khalifah Al Dhaheri

Al Mehfar Park area is a location near to Tanoumah where we saw a lot of very good birds last year. Khalifah spent some time here and also one evening where he located Arabian Scops Owl just as we had done the year previously. Khaliufah managed to photograph the two Plain Nightjars which is something we failed to do last year, although we did see Montane Nightjar and also saw or heard seven Arabian Scops Owls as well as hearing Philby's Partridge and Arabian Partridge. Also seen were Eurasian Griffon, two Little Swifts, three Green Bee-eaters, five Pale Crag-Martins, two Yemen Warblers, two Gambaga Flycatchers, two Yemen Thrushes, eight Tristram's Starlings, three Palestine Sunbird, Long-billed Pipit, seven Yemen Linnets, two Yemen Serins, five House Sparrows and five Rueppell's Weavers. Khalifa has very kindly allow me to reproduce some of his excellent photos below.
