White-eyed and Sooty Gulls – Jizan Corniche

The best place to see White-eyed and Sooty Gull in the Kingdom is the fish market at Jizan but the morning we went it was so bust with people that few birds were around. Luckily, as we moved south along the coast we saw a small mixed gull flock with a number of both species present. Also seen were Baltic Gull and Steppe Gull. Waders present were a small flock of Ruddy Turnstone, European Oystercatcher and several Bar-tailed Godwits. Plenty of House Crows were flying around and further up the corniche a Western Osprey was located with many Crab Plover.
