Returning waders at Dhahran Expro Wader Roost – Bird records by Phil Roberts

Phil Roberts went down to the coast last Saturday to the Dhahran Expro Wader Roost and although there was not much water on the right hand side of the wader roost there were hundreds of sand plovers (Greater and Lesser) on the mud at the back together with over 50 Gull-billed Terns and other assorted waders including Black-winged Stilts.  On the other side the tide was right in but I did see three Whimbrel, Terek Sandpipers and Ruddy Turnstones along the shoreline.
