Blue Rock Thrush - Jubail

Whilst birding the desert near Jubail I came across a small vegetated valley with a little wet pool. It was very attractive to migrants with plenty of Common Chiffchaffs, several Eurasian Hoopoes, White Wagtail and a single female Blue Rock Thrush. Blue Rock Thrush is an uncommon passage migrant through Saudi Arabia that is seen more that is more often in the spring than autumn. They are early migrants with most birds seen in February and March in the spring in the Eastern Province.
