Scarce winter visitor at Sabkhat Al Fasl – Record by Phil Roberts

Phil Roberts was at Sabkat Al Fasl recently and saw a few good birds. He managed to see a Western Marsh Harrier in a tree, a very unusual place for one to be seen. Other good birds were Water Pipits that were back in good numbers for the winter, Common Kingfisher, Common Chiffchaff, Greater Spotted Eagle and a male Common Blackbird a rare winter visitor to the Eastern Province. I would like to thank Phil for sending me the records and photos and for allowing me to use them on my website.
