QNHG visits Shamal for birdwatching Oct 28, 2017 0 158 12345 A Qatar Natural History Group (QNHG) team recently visited Al Shamal Park for birdwatching. Al Shamal Park is considered the favourite first stop in Qatar for many migrating birds returning from southern Europe and Asia en route to their wintering grounds in central and southern Africa. The 50-member QNHG team visited Al Shamal Park and saw quails, chiffchaffs, Daurian shrikes as well as white, grey and yellow wagtails. The highlight of their visit, however, was the appearance of a European nightjar, which very obligingly posed for all the members' cameras. After an hour of exploring this very pleasant park, the Group went on to explore the coast around Al Ruwais. Despite the low tide, many seabirds and waders were in residence, including terns, curlews, whimbrels, plovers, cormorans, herons and flamingoes. In total, 41 species were observed and identified during this outing.
