Birds from Buraidah – Bird records by Ragu Shanbhogue

Ragu Shanbhogue has been sending me a few photographs he has taken in Buraidah in the north north of the Kingdom in recent weeks with the photos below some of the best ones. He has been seeing a number of good migrants in his area some of which are struggling to make it to the Eastern Province n numbers this year in particular Spanish Sparrow and Masked Shrike. Like the Eastern Province some of the main wintering species such as White Wagtail are starting to appear in good numbers in Ragu’s area as well with these numbers building up over the net couple of months.
Masked Shrike - juvenile
Barn Swallow - juvenile
Common Chiffchaff
Eurasian Blackcap
Spanish Sparrow
