Two different Arabian Red Foxes – Dhahran Hills

Whilst birding the Dhahran Hills area the last few days I have had a number of sightings of Arabian Red Fox, and on one day I had two separate sightings of two different animals. One was a lot less nervous than the other and just sat and watched me for a while until a dog walker came within range and the fox fled. The second fox was much more timid and although I got reasonably close to it, as it did not see me, as soon as it did it darted into the bushes and was not seen again. It has been a good year for seeing Arabian Red Fox this year and I have had some good views as well. I know some people do not like foxes but I am always happy when I see one and even happier if I can get a photograph as well.
