Migrants appearing in Al Hassa – Records by Arnold Uy

Whilst birdwatching in the Al Hassa area Arnold Uy saw a few good birds including a number of migrants. The Egyptian Nightjars that Arnold saw a few weeks ago are still present with at least five birds seen. This site, like the one in Jubail, seems to hold Egyptian Nightjars throughout the summer now indicating birds may be breeding somewhere nearby. Migrants also included the first Lesser Grey Shrikes of the autumn as well as Isabelline Wheatears. An Eastern Olivaceous Warbler may have been a migrant or possibly a still present breeding bird. I thank Arnold for sending me the details of his trip and for allowing me to use his photos on my website.
