Hot on the heels of her book Common Birds of Qatar, Fran Gillespie provides an introduction to the birds of Qatar for QatarVisitor readers.
In Qatar Birds Frances explores the surprising variety of birds the tiny country attracts - a variety of species which in part are due to the changes in the environment caused by both industry and a desire to green and beautify the country.
Fran follows up with an Introduction to Birdwatching in Qatar, a great guide to (desert proof!) equipment and identification for less experienced birdwatching.
The articles are accompanied throughout by superb photography by Dileep Kumar, who also took the images here.
