If you’re a bird-watching enthusiast preparing to visit the city, get ready to spot over 400 magnificent species on their migration route between Asia and Africa. Request a permit to enter the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary
and admire spotted eagles, broad-billed sandpipers and the greater herons that stop over each winter. Alternately, you can visit the Emirates Golf Club
and see pintail snipes, red-wattled lapwings and isabelline shrikes in all their glory.
