Eurasian Oystercatcher & Little Grebe - Saihat

Early morning of 12th August we went to Saihat to see we could photograph the terns that had been present at the same site two weeks ago. Unfortunately when we arrived there were lots of people about even though it was before 06:00 hrs. This is because it is Ramadan at the moment and people stay out all night during this period. There were very few birds about with the best bird seen being two Rufous-tailed Scrub Robin. We also got good views of Eurasian Oystercatcher and Little Grebe, two species which are not easy to get close to in Saudi Arabia.
