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.
