Mid of July 2016 we decided to visit the southern Red Sea Coast of Egypt. The main reasons of the trip, were to relax in the sun in early fall and to see some Western Palearctic specialities
in an interesting and not very often visited region during fall migration. With this in mind we booked a two-weeks charter .
We stayed at the Gorgonia Beach Resort just 2km north of the famous but old-fashioned Shams Alam Resort Hotel (SARH) at the northern boundary of Wadi el Gemal National Park.
We visited the following birdwatching locations:
