Ringing again – Jubail

Phil Roberts and I have again been allowed to ring at Sabkhat Al Fasl by the Saudi Wildlife Authority. Our first trip ringing was good for us with 25 birds caught of 15 species and some good birds. We ringed Kentish Plover, Eurasian Blackcap, Menetries Warbler, Moustached Warbler and Savi’s Warbler amongst others. The hot temperatures meant we had to stop ringing early to ensure safety of the birds but it was and enjoyable return to the nets.
