Pied Kingfisher in Dhahran – Bird records by Rejith Muralee and Vinu Mathew

Rejith Muralee went to a small lake on the outskirts of Dhahran birdwatching and found another Pied Kingfisher. As mentioned before there has been a major influx into the eastern part of Arabia with birds in many different places including up to 12 at Sabkhat Al Fasl Saudi Arabia, seven in Kuwait, four in the United Arab Emirates, two in Bahrain and one in Qatar. These are unprecedented numbers for the region and I am sure there are still more to be found if birders look carefully in suitable habitat near water. I would like to thank Vinu Mathew a friend of Rejith Muralee for sending me the photos and details and for Rejith for allowing me ti use his photos on my website.
