Not much change – Dhahran Hills

Birding the patch the last few days has produced very little of note and not much change to the birds that have been around earlier in the week. Ferruginous Duck numbers have dropped to 16 birds, but White-winged Tern numbers have increased too seven, a very high number for the pond. A small number of yellow wagtails have been passing through, as have Pied Wheatears, Northern Wheatears and Isabelline Wheatears. Waders have been the majority of birds seen with Little Stints, Temminck’s Stints, Dunlins, Curlew Sandpipers, Marsh Sandpipers, Common Redshanks, Kentish Plovers, Little Ringed Plovers, Green Sandpipers and Wood Sandpipers all recorded in the last week.
