Once we a week hubby and I take Bob into the desert for a run a round and a splash in the artificial man made lakes that are cooled and filtered to encourage the wildlife. I've seen Plovers and Doves on a regular basis but this is the first time I've seen a Heron
Now in the title I mentioned Herons and Cranes. I'm easily confused with birds so I googled to make sure I identified the birds correctly. I believe this is a Great Blue Heron, my google search needed to be fine tuned a little as when you google 'Cranes in the desert in Dubai' this is what pops up.
