Raydah Escarpemnt - Abha

A winter visit to the bottom of the Raydah Escarpment early in the morning produced good views of a number of species. Arabian Babbler, Arabian Warbler and Shining Sunbird are common at most times of year here but Ruppell’s Weaver is less common. White-browed Coucal is seen with less frequency but are resident in small numbers in the valley. They are extremely difficult to photograph properly and the ones seen this trip were no exception. They are very good at disappearing into thick foliage or hiding in large trees making things difficult photography wise.
