Wetlands are land areas that are saturated or flooded with water either permanently or seasonally. They provide habitat for animals and plants and are key for the survival of many species.
As the world celebrated #WorldWetlandsDay on the 2nd of February, 2019, NCE organized a birdwatching trip to Lake Qarun Protected Area, a Ramsar wetland site and Important Bird Area (IBA), and Tunis village in Fayoum.
We saw a variety of beautiful birds, some residing in Egypt, and others that migrated long distances to spend their winters here.
Here’s the list of birds we saw:
Southern grey shrike (Aucher’s)
Clamorous reed warbler
