Temminck’s Stint and more – Jubail

In early September I saw a nice Temminck’s Stint along a wet ditch in Jubail. Unfortunately it was not very photogenic and the below poor photo is the only one I managed. The species is a passage migrant and winter visitor that is a regular migrant in small numbers almost always away from the coast. It occurs in April and May and again from September to November. Some birds do winter in very small numbers at some suitable inland sites such as Sabkhat Al Fasl near Jubail.
