Early morning down the Raydah Escarpment – Abha

Whilst in the Asir Mountains recently I went down the Raydah Escarpment early in the morning. This is the best place and best time to try to locate Arabian Partridge and as normal I was not disappointed with a number of birds calling and a couple seen on the roadside. A stop at the disused farm was relatively good with good views of Abyssinian White-eye and plenty of other resident species. Further down I had a party of four Arabian Waxbills an Arabian endemic species that is far from easy to see and several Laughing Doves.
