Three species of Pipit – Dhahran Hills

The pipits are still present in good numbers around the edge of the settling pond in the early morning and late evening along with large numbers of White Wagtails. I have been spending a lot of time looking through them all in the hope of finding something different but so far have drawn a blank. I have been able to get a few decent photographs of the pipits though which are mainly Water Pipits with five Tawny Pipits and four Meadow Pipits. There are at least 100 White Wagtails as well, but agin nothing of note has been located amongst these birds either yet. There is still time and hope that this may change before the birds move off in the spring.
