Sabkhat Al Fasl birding – Bird records by Vinu Mathew

Vinu Mathew went to Sabkhat Al Fasl for the first time a couple of weeks ago and saw and photographed a number of birds. He was able to catch up with at least one the very photogenic female Pied Kingfishers and described the site as unbelievable. This is undoubtedly one of the best sites in the Eastern Province for birdwatching and is excellent every time you visit. Vinu also managed to see and photograph one of the wintering Daurian Shrikes as well as Black-winged Stilts that are still about in good numbers. I am sure this will not be the last visit for Vinu to Sabkhat Al Fasl so lets hope he sees and photographs more good birds in the future.
