Eurasian Sparrowhawk in Dhahran – Record by Paul Wells

Paul Wells was out birding in the foggy early morning weather we had recently and managed to find and photograph a Eurasian Sparrowhawk. Paul mentioned there were two of these birds in close proximity and thought it was maybe it was because of the fog they had stopped over in Dhahran. Eurasian Sparrowhawk is a common passage migrant and winter visitor to the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia although they are always good to see and watch. Dhahran camp is a very good area to see the birds with the golf course area the prime site. Paul saw his birds at the edge of the golf course so it is good to know they are back for the winter. I thank Paul for sending me details and allowing me to use them on my website.
