Spur-winged Lapwing breeding? – Jubail

Whilst biding the Jubail area in early August 2017 I saw two Spur-winged Lapwing again in the same place where they have been present since April. The behaviour of the birds being very vocal and calling in flight as was the case the last time I saw it suggests the bird are breeding. Despite searching for young birds none were found so confirmation of breeding will have to wait a little while longer. The species has not been proved to breed in the Eastern Province yet but hopefully this will change if when we see the young of this pair.
