Waders close in - Jubail

Whilst birding the Jubail area recently the water levels were higher than in recent weeks so more waders were present. There were plenty of Black-winged Stilts and a good number of Pied Avocet but they were quite distant so not photographed. Closer waders included good numbers of Little Stint and Dunlin with single figures of Lesser Sand Plover, Ruddy Turnstone and Marsh Sandpiper. More common waders included Common Ringed Plovers and Curlew Sandpipers. The high water made the waders closer to the road so photographic conditions were good but the light was quite harsh.
