Some interesting birds from Riyadh – Bird records by Liam Brickwood

Liam sent me a number of his photos that he kindly said I could add to my website of birds seen by him at Salwa Garden Village, Bae Compound, Riyadh over the last month or so. He photographed Eurasian Hoopoe, Common Chiffchaff, Grey Hypocolius and Lesser Whitethroat. Grey Hypocolius are seen regularly in the Riyadh area but are not easy to see anywhere else in the Kingdom and have just started retuning for the winter. The other species may also be ready to winter here but could also be late passage migrants.
