OMAN - FEB 2011

CAROLINE AND MYSELF SPENT A FORTNIGHT TOURING OMAN, A COUNTRY POSSESSING AN AMAZING VARIETY OF HABITATS. FROM VAST BARREN DESERTS TO HIGH MOUNTAINS AND LUSH COASTAL LAGOONS, EACH AREA HELD EXCITING BIRDS, MANY EXTREMELY PHOTOGRAPHABLE. RAPTORS ARE PARTICULARLY NUMEROUS. WINTER IS PERHAPS THE BEST TIME TO VISIT FOR PHOTOGRAPHY, THOUGH SPRING WOULD PRODUCE A GREATER VARIETY OF SPECIES. DO NOT GO DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS - IT IS FAR TOO HOT!
