Large numbers of Harriers - Haradh

Whilst birding the NADAC Farm area of Haradh 14 October I saw plenty of Harriers including at minimum of ten Western Marsh Harriers, mainly female/immatures but a smart male was also seen. Montagu’s Harriers were also present including an adult and several Pallid Harriers with a male and several juveniles seen. In total we saw over thirty harriers all of which were hunting over the pivot irrigation fields of the farming areas. October is the best month to see harriers on migration and Haradh is the best location in the Eastern Province but the total seen was very high even for this time and location.
