Some good birds - Dammam Airport Pools

Bob Roberts went birding to Dammam Airport Pools on Friday 26th August and saw some very good birds including a Lesser Grey Shrike, 13 Glossy Ibis, 2 Collared Pratincole, Isabelline Wheatear, Caspian Reed Warbler and a Juvenile Little Bittern. This site is now a regular place to see Cream-coloured Courser with Bob seeing up to 19 together on the left side of the reedbeds if looking from the road. Thanks very much to Bob for allowing me to put his photographs on m website. On the 27th August there were 13 Glossy Ibis, one Lesser Grey Shrike and a single Cream-coloured Courser.
