A few migrants in Jubail – Bird records by Phil Roberts

Phil Roberts went to Jubail on Friday and saw a Greater Spotted Eagle perched on a lamppost as well as two more on the ground. Other wintering birds seen included a Pied Kingfisher, half a dozen White Wagtails, Daurian Shrike and seven Western Marsh Harriers. There were signs birds are on the move with a small flock of Red-throated Pipits, plenty of Yellow Wagtails (one black-headed and the rest beema). Phil also saw a flock of 100+ Ruff, two Common Sandpipers, two Black-tailed Godwits and a Common Redstart. Added to that were the usual residents, including 53 Grey-headed Swamphen and plenty of Indian (Clamorous) Reed Warblers. I thank Phil Roberts for kindly allowing me to use his photos on my website which are reproduced below.
