Spur-winged Lapwing still present - Jubail

Whilst biding the Jubail area in early July 2017 I saw the Spur-winged Lapwing again in the same place I refound it on 23 June. The behaviour of the bird being very vocal and calling in flight as was the case the last time I saw it suggests the bird may be breeding. It will be interesting to see if I see more than one bird at the site over the next few weeks. Breeding has not been proven in the Eastern Province although I saw a bird that was apparently defending a territory at Haradh earlier this year.
