Twelve Black-throated Thrushes still present – Deffi Park

After finding four Black-throated Thrushes at Deffi Park, Jubail on 20 January I went back a week later to see if I could get better photos and see if anything else had turned up and found 12 birds in the same place. Other photogrpahers have been to the site in between and seen only three birds but when I went back with Phil on 10 February we saw 12 birds again. This suggests the birds move to somewhere else in Jubail for part of the time and use Deffi park at other times. As these birds are extremely rare visitors to Saudi Arabia this is an amazing sight particularly as there are at least 15 Song Thrushes present as well. Photography is difficult as light is poor in the early morning, they generally stay in the shade but occasionally they would come out into more open areas.
