Temminck’s Lark and more near Zulfi – Records by Mansul Al Fahad

Temminck’s Lark Eremophila bilopha is a scarce and erratic winter visitor to most northern areas of the Kingdom. It is also a breeding resident, locally common in Central Deserts. I have looked for this species quite a few times in various areas but have so far not managed to see any. I obviously need to visit the north again this year and hope to better than previously. Mansur managed to see some birds near Zulfi in late November and sent me one of his great photos of it along with a couple of other photos of Steppe Eagle and Common Quail taken in the same area at the same time. I thank Mansur for kindly allowing me to use his photos on my website which are shown below.
