A Few Common Camp Birds

Best birds seen yesterday were a Little Egret and a juvenile Indian (Western) Reef Heron together on the percolation pond. Waders seen at the same site included five Ruff, seven Green Sandpiper, ten Little Stint, eighteen Wood Sandpiper, twenty one Kentish Plover, thirty eight Little Ringed Plover and two hundred and twenty six Black-winged Stilt. There were three pairs of Little Grebe with nine young present on the pond.

Today I took some of photographs of a few of the common camp birds, Common Myna, Rock Dove and Crested Lark. All these birds are resident in Dhaharan camp and can be seen in good numbers at all times of year.
