A few good birds in Dhahran – Bird records by Phil Roberts

Phil went for a walk around the jebals behind the power station 28 February and turned up a few good birds. The best was an Asian Desert Warbler that is scarce on the camp although my first record for the patch was in this same area in 2011. Phil also saw Pied Wheatear, Isabelline Wheatear, Lesser Whitethroat and Tawny Pipit, with the Wheatears showing that migration is definitely underway. Phil kindly sent me some details and a couple of his photos and has allowed me permission to use them on my website of which I am very grateful.
