Typical Summer Birds - Jubail

Summer birding in the Eastern Province is relatively quiet but good birds can be seen with perseverance. Terns are common summer visitors to mainly breed on the offshore islands in the Gulf with Caspian Tern, White-cheeked tern and Little Tern being commonly seen. Common breeding waders include Black-winged Stilt and Kentish Plover with Clamorous Reed Warbler also a common resident breeder. Egyptian Nightjar is a possible but unconfirmed breeder and a regular summer visitor to Jubail in recent years.
