Wadi Helo, UAE 4.9.10 - Sand Partridge

Spent a few hours Saturday morning staking out a water pool in the Hajar Mountains ,  specifically Wadi Helo.
With temperatures around 45c in the Wadi  I was hoping Sand partridge (known in this area) would come to the pool.  Fortunately it worked out and after one hour a couple of adventurous females made their way to the water, the males however, were a little more wary and never quite got there !  If you are interested in the location it can be found here 24°56'31.22"N 56°13'0.01"E   Just copy into Google Earth.


 

As always please check out Pbase for more images from this trip.
