Western Osprey catching fish - Jubail

Whilst at Jubail recently I saw a Western Osprey being mobbed by hundreds of Black-winged Stilts. The bird was not put off its fishing attempts and managed to catch a fish before flying off. I managed to only get a few photos of it taking off from the water, which are shown below. In the Eastern Province birds are most often seen near the coast where they are regular passage migrant from March to April then again in September and October.as well as resident breeding species.
