Eurasian Wryneck & Spotted Flycatcher at Udhailiyah – Bird records by Nishan Xavier

Nishan Xavier sent me a coupe of photos he took in September 2014 in Udhailiyah Heights, Saudi Aramco camp and has kindly allowed me to use them on my website. The Eurasian Wryneck is not a common species in the Eastern Province and in Dhahran I have only had a few records with most sightings being in the spray fields area. Spotted Flycatcher is a common passage migrant with birds seen daily during the migration season both in spring and autumn.
