A few migrants - Jubail

Whilst birding the Jubail area recently I saw a small number of migrants. A few Daurian Shrikes were sitting about on the bushes and Spotted Flycatchers were catching insects from various low perches. Great Egrets and a couple of Purple Herons were flying around and plenty of Squacco Herons were hiding in the Reed beds. Yellow Wagtails were seen flying over calling with a few on the ground in the scrub along with up to ten Greater Short-toed Larks. Barn Swallow, Sand Martin and Blue-cheeked Bee-eaters were around in good numbers. It was not a great day for migration but there were enough birds around to keep the interest up.
