COVID-19 restrictions being the new norm, we’ll have a limited number of participants. So please register as soon as possible, and honor your commitment. Masks and Etheraz app are mandatory.
We plan to visit one of the deepest caves/sink-holes in Qatar to witness the chorus of rising birds and observe the geology of the sink-hole. Interested participants can also descend in the sink-hole. The descent can be steep for those suffering from vertigo, but it is not difficult to manage.

A birding enthusiast by day, an astronomer by night and an engineer in between. Behind me are hundreds of pinhole projections of the eclipsed sun from Doha earlier in 2020. I'm proud to live with my 8 inch telescope, a bunch of cameras, a bicycle and three daughters!
