Some brightly coloured passage migrants – Dhahran Hills

There has been quite a good passage of bee-eaters through Dhahran Hills with good numbers of European Bee-eaters passing through first followed by smaller numbers of Blue-cheeked Bee-eaters over the last week or so. Other brightly coloured birds include a number of Yellow Wagtails and a single European Roller by the Swimming Pool. Wader numbers are also increasing with Black-winged Stilts, Kentish Plovers and Little Ringed Plovers about in small numbers and a single Indian Reef Heron was seen on a flooded grass area a couple of days ago.
