Plovers and more - Dammam - Al Khobar Wader Roost South

Another trip last night to the Dammam - Al Khobar Wader Roost South as the tide was not too bad for seeing the birds. The tide was not as good as the day before but was still in enough to push a few birds close to shore. Again much the same was present and six Crab Plovers, all adults, so I assume the two adults and juvenile have moved on now. The Western Osprey was in exactly the same place as yesterday and only one tern was present today, a Lesser Crested Tern.
