A few Waders – Jubail

A reasonable number of waders are still around the wetland areas of Jubail with good numbers of the common species and a few less common winter birds such as Greater Sand Plovers, Grey Plovers, Pied Avocets and Marsh Sandpipers. The majority of birds seen were Black-winged Stilts, Kentish Plovers, Common Ringed Plovers, Little Stints and Dunlins. I also saw a single Green Sandpiper at the edge of a wet area and two Common Greenshanks. The below photos show three different Greater Sand Plovers.
