Breeding Egyptian Nightjars in Bahrain – Bird records by Jihad Alammadi

Jihad Alammadi sent me details of breeding Egyptian Nightjars in Bahrain this year some time ago. He found Egyptian Nightjar with its two chicks at a location south of the Alba Marsh and also another bird sitting on an egg close Al Areen. Egyptian Nightjars have been proved to breed in Bhahrain only in the last couple of years and it is very encouraging they are still doing so. I thank Jihad for allowing me permission to use his photos on my website.
