Some great migrants on Taif to Riyadh road – Records by Saud Randhawa

Saud Randhava a local birdwatcher from Taif recorded a good fall of migrants whilst driving along the Taif to Riyadh road on 22 April. He said there is a wildlife reserve either side of the road before Zulfi town (approximately 500 kilometres from Riyadh) that is prohibited for hunting. Saud stopped his car at a petrol station and noticed lots of birds sitting on road side and some of them on walls. He managed to photograph a number of interesting species and has sent me the details and allowed me to use them on my website for which I am very grateful.
