Some interesting bird near Zulfi – Bird records by Mansur Al Fahad

Mansur Al Fahad has just sent me some amazing photos of a few birds he saw around Zulfi in the north of the Kingdom during September and early October (Hajj holiday) 2014. Masur has kindly allowed me to use the photos on my website which are reproduced below. The Eurasian Turtle Dove was seen at some Farms just north of Zulfi with the Spotted Crake seen about 60 kilomentres northeast of Zulfi in Al Haski Vale where Acacia trees were present. The Steppe Buzzard was at Al Thweer Road about 35 kilometres northwest of Zulfi with the Menetries’s Warbler in an Acacia tree just south of Zulfi.
