Winter birding at Al Asfar Lake Al Hassa - Records by Arnold Uy

Arnold went birding at Al Asfar Lake near Al Hassa recently and found a few winter birds including up to six Common Stonechats. He also saw the almost resident Western Osprey along with a Common Kestrel. Two Greater Spotted Eagles were also present and look like they are wintering at the wetland which has not been recorded at the location for a number of years although this is probably more due to the fact not many birders visit the site in winter rather than birds not being there. I thank Arnold for the information and permission to use his photos on my website.
