Yesterday I headed north to the Al Ruwais area. The day started out cold and windy with a little bit of rain. Not ideal conditions for photography. After a few hours and not much to show for my efforts I decided to head home. En route the sun put in an appearance, so I changed my mind and headed off to Al Thakhira, as I had never been there before.

I got very excited when this Great Black-headed Gull flew overhead
