Passing us, trucks with children who looked as if they had come from swimming broke the wonderful peace of the valley.

Later we came across some Lichtenstein’s Sandgrouse with chicks. The chicks froze as they crossed the track. So in case the were run over by a passing truck we took them and placed them on the road side, and took a quick picture of their camouflage.
