Falco biarmicus


  • Jebel Uewinat (rock outcrop 20 kms to the North east), March 2010

    Birds of prey were observed on a number of occasions at isolated hills or rock outcrops, and their droppings are frequent. However due to their speed photography and identicication is very difficult. Finally one of a pair of falcons was photographed in March 2010, positively identifying the species as Lanner falcon. The top of the rock outcrop where the pair were observed had a thick layer of droppings, however no nest was seen.
