    South Sinai (Ras al Mohammed & Nabq)

    I will be heading soon to Dahab and intend to visit Ras al Mohammed and Nabq. 1. Where is the best site for Sooty Falcon at Ras al Mohammed? From where to look for migrant raptors there? 2. Where to go at Nabq? Main targets there are Sooty Gull, Terns and maybe waders. Best regards! Adrian
