Greater Hoopoe-lark at Qaryat Al Ulya – Record by Vinu Mathew

Vinu Mathew took some photos of a Greater Hoopoe-Lark near Qaryat Al Ulya last weekend and has kindly allowed me to use them on my website some of which are shown below. The Greater Hoopoe-lark is a common breeding resident to all sandy desert areas of the Kingdom including the Empty Quarter, the desert regions of the Southern Red Sea and the Tihamah. They are uncommon in the North-west. They are common in the Eastern Province but normally seen in small numbers except in winter when large gatherings can occur near pivot irrigation fields and surrounding desert areas.
