Catching the tide right at Dammam - Al Khobar Wader Roost South

Yesterday afternoon I caught the tide right at Dammam - Al Khobar Wader Roost South. It is difficult to do this as the mud flats have a very small drop in height and the wind and changes in tide height each day make judging the best time to go difficult even with the tide tables. When I got to the site many of the birds had been pushed up to the shoreline giving good photographic opportunities.
