Three Red-necked Phalaropes (Sabkhat Al Fasl) – Bird records by Phil Roberts

Phil Roberts went to Sabkhat Al Fasl on 14 September and saw three Red-necked Phalaropes on the scrape area. These are the third records of the species this year at the site which is good as although they are regular here they have not been seen for a couple of years. Birds were seen in May, July and September. The photographs below were taken by Phil who kindly sent them to me and gave me permission to use them on my website. The copyright of the photographs remains with Phil.

Phil also went again to the same site on 28 September and mentioned there were more migrants including Daurian and Turkestan Shrike, a few Yellow Wagtails, a flock of 30 European Bee-eaters, a Wryneck, 4 Marsh Harriers and a Common Quail, plus all the usual suspects.
