Juvenile White-winged Terns – Jubail

Whilst birding the Jubail area recently I came across a group of four or five White-winged Terns. The location and light conditions allowed several good photos to be taken. In Saudi Arabia the White-winged Tern is a common migrant occurring in small groups of up to twenty birds. Adults in breeding plumage occurring from late April to early June and in early August juveniles appear and are seen through to December. Birds are most often seen near the coast but have occurred well inland with one seen at Haradh in September.
