A low protruding hill (jebel) near Khiran town. Access is from Road 290, south of Road 278. The hill is a rock-climbing and picnic site, but is a good view point for migratory birds. This area is now being incorporated into Sea City, but the Jebels will remain as features of this new landscape.
Crag Martin, Steppe Eagle, Lesser Kestrel and Pallid Harrier have been seen overhead. It is a good location for many Wheatears (Eastern Mourning, Finschs, Pied, Eastern Black-eared and Kurdish) in passage, but particularly Red-tailed Wheatear in winter. Blue Rock and Rufous-tailed Rock Thrush and a Pharaoh Eagle Owl have also been recorded in recent years. In 2013 Desert Finch was recorded breeding near Khiran, an exciting record. The desert areas around Khiran have also hosted rare wheatears in the form of Red-tailed and Kurdistan. In the surrounding area little rocky outcrops exist; a record of Pharaoh Eagle Owl was made here in 2010. Caspian plover and Cream-coloured Courser are frequently seen here and Kentish Plover breeds on isolated beaches. On the tiny islets in the main estuary near Kirhan harbour, newly planted habitat attracts passerine migrants in both spring and autumn.
Indo-pacific Humpback Dolphin, Black Finless Porpoise, Hawksbill Turtle and Manta Rays.
