Some common migrants in Dhahran – Bird records by Mats Ris

Mats Ris a local birdwatcher in Saudi Aramco camp took a good tour around Dhahran Hills on 16 April and saw a few common migrants including Common Chiffchaffs, Willow Warblers, Spotted Flycatchers, one Little Tern at the pond on the golf course, approximately 15 Yellow Wagtails and a Sand Martin. Mats did mention he failed to see any Western Cattle Egrets this weekend so possibly they have all left for the summer. I saw a few Tree Pipits around the grassy areas and Mats saw quite a few on the golf course earlier in the month. I thank Mats for sending me his sightings and allowing me to use his photos on my website which are reproduced below. I took the bottom photo of the Tree Pipit recently in the camp.
