This comes as a great disappointment to me personally, as the gardens at the Sheraton, Doha have given me many hours of pleasure over the years. The gardens have lawns and acacia trees, bushes and a small lagoon. All packed neatly against a quiet shore. There are many residents there such as the bulbuls, doves and mynas and it also acts as a very attractive stopping point for many birds who are just passing through.
So here is a gallery of birds from a number of trips over the several years we have been staying there.
Actually, while I was watching it, I was convinced that this was a Lesser Sand, but I am having a crisis of confidence. Now that I look at it again, could it be a Greater? Comments and thoughts welcome.
