I am currently in involved in a project in Qatar for which we urgently need photographs of the following species. Ideally we would like images of birds taken in Qatar itself, but we are struggling to find them. Hence I wanted to widen the net and ask if anyone has taken pics of these species in areas adjacent to Qatar, e.g. the eastern Saudi. The species we still need images of are:

  • Whooper Swan Cygnus Cygnus
  • Ruddy Shelduck Tadorna ferruginea
  • Eurasian Wigeon Anas Penelope
  • Tufted Duck Aythya fuligula
  • Western Great Egret Ardea alba alba
  • Hen Harrier Circus cyaneus cyaneus
  • Steppe Buzzard Buteo buteo vulpinus
  • Steppe Eagle Aquila nipalensis
  • Lanner Falcon Falco biarmicus
  • Peregrine Falcon Falco (peregrinus) peregrinus
  • Common Swift Apus apus
  • Eurasian Crag Martin Ptyonoprogne rupestris
  • Common House Martin Delichon urbicum
  • Sykes’s Warbler Iduna rama
  • Desert Whitethroat Sylvia minula
  • Caspian Stonechat Saxicola maurus variegatus
  • Richard’s Pipit Anthus (novaeseelandiae) richardi
  • Meadow Pipit Anthus pratensis
  • Eurasian Siskin Carduelis spinus

Please send any images to me privately at "tarsiger at ntlworld dot com" and I will be pleased to explain the project. Thank you.
