Oman Day 10; Muscat & Leaving

In a bizarre turn of events, once we arrived in Muscat the previous evening the heavens had opened and a torrential rainstorm had ensued. As a result many of the dry spots around Muscat had been turned into wetland the following morning. It was a shame that we did not have time to look round them but on our drive to the airport we spotted Red-wattled Lapwing and Black-winged Stilt on the fresh water bodies. A pair of Grey Francolins was also seen on the grassy verges at the edge of the airport. The final species we saw on our Oman adventure was Common Myna.

Species List:
Muscat: Red-wattled Lapwing, Grey Francolin, Common Myna, House Sparrow, Black-winged Stilt, Common Sandpiper, Feral Pigeon,
