Socotra – The name of the island that I have been daydreaming of so many times. Dragon Blood Trees, a reptile hotspot and currently eleven endemic bird species roaming in one of the most dramatic and beautiful landscapes I have witnessed. One bird was of particular interest, the Abd al Kuri Sparrow. It inhabits the remote island that gave it its name, a days voyage from Socotra, and so far only seen by very few. Birdtour Asia organized this tour. The first 6 photos in this gallery represent some of the most wanted or unique targets on the trip. The rest are uploaded chronologically. On the last page some photos from our stopover in Abu Dhabi.
