This is a place for some serious flamingo-watching. The path from the main road to the view-point is covered in thatch, providing the pink beauties complete privacy. The pathway ends at a small viewing gallery fitted with a security guard and a tripod-mounted telescope. The security guard silently offered us a pair of high-power binocular that brought the vista even closer. At a distance of less than two hundred meters, the camera's view-finder was suddenly clogged with white feathers and slender, swirling necks tipped with pink, curved beaks. Then, as the high-tide began, a smaller group started to move closer to the shore, offering great sighting opportunities. Some months ago I had been to Lake Nakuru in Kenya for flamingo-watching, and here at Ras Al-Khor, I ended up watching more of these beauties, from much closer quarter, in a more peaceful environment.
