Having always been interested in birds, I take great pleasure in spotting and identifying the many birds I see at college. Once I got a half decent camera it seemed natural to combine the two. Knowing that I had colleagues here and in other colleges who are also interested in ornithology and photography, primarily Nick Lake at DMC, I thought it might be a good idea to compare lists and gather images of the birds identified.


Our aim is to list and photograph the birds that can be found on these campuses, having started with Dubai Men's College (HCT) and Sharjah Higher Colleges (HCT), we are now increasing the number of institutions involved.  We are keen to get contributions from other colleges or schools in the UAE, both lists of birds identified and photographs. Just contact us.
