A few interesting birds near Tabuk – Bird records by Viv Wilson

Viv Wilson a birder from Tabuk has sent a number of photos to me over the last few weeks and has kindly allowed me to reproduce a few below. These birds include resident species such as Tristram’s Starlings, White-spectacled Bulbuls, Palestine Sunbird, Southern Grey Shrike and Desert Lark, all species that do not occur in the Eastern Province where I bird watch with the exception of Desert Lark and Southern Grey Shrike, both of which are uncommon in my region. The other species are limited to the west of the Kingdom although some occur as eastwards as far as the Riyadh area.
