A couple of migrants - Dhahran Hills

Things are quite quiet on the 'patch' at the moment. The water levels are down everywhere and the temperature is very high at +45 degrees Celsius. About the only thing of interest were a few waders of which I saw one Ruff, ten Black-winged Stilt, ten Little Ringed Plover, thirteen Little Stint and thirty Kentish Plover. There were a couple of other migrants about in the shape of three Barn Swallow and two Isabelline Wheatear.
