For most of the year this lake is a huge empty salt pan, but in spring the desert winds crossing the lake are filled with the sounds of birds and the lake becomes an old fashioned water lake. Flamingos, ducks, plovers and sheldracks swing by on their annual migrations, but the more exotically named Arabian Buzzard an Egyptian Nightjars are more permanent fixtures in the region, as are the very rare and very tiny Desert Sparrows.

Birds find it easier to get here, but there are other animals to be seen on a springtime visit: scorpians, Scarab Beetles, sand coloured lizards and snakes, Desert Hedgehogs and gerbils, and the Desert Fox. Yes, there is such a thing as a Desert Gerbil.
