Ahmed Waheed started bird-watching when he was seven years old. He would travel with his father, who was the manager of the Zaranik Protectorate in North Sinai. The protectorate covers 250 square kilometers, and lies just 30 kilometers west of the town of Arish, along the Mediterranean Coast in northeastern Egypt.
“Photographing birds can be a challenging hobby, requiring knowledge of species’ behavior and migration patterns, and lots of patience. This photo was taken in Hurghada, Red Sea Governorate, in March of 2013.”
Dr Ahmed gives us stunning pictures of birds in Egypt. Some are on their way south – where we meet them just next to us in the Rusizi Wetlands, which is on the north-western side of Lake Tanganyika in Burundi.
