Pivot Irrigation Fields – Haradh

I have travelled over to the Red Sea coast a couple of times recently with work and was amazed at how green the desert was over there. This winter saw plenty of heavy rain and it was obviously to the liking of the plants that were growing everywhere. On the flight over we flew over Haradh which is the headquarters of the NADEC Dairy Company’s operations and to support these they have created large areas of pivot irrigation fields, growing cattle fodder, which are a magnet for wintering birds. I managed to take a few photos of the pivot fields near where we have seen Sociable Lapwings wintering in the last four years. These fields are massive as can be seen by the buildings near to them.
