Osprey – Dhahran Waste Water Lake

Whilst birding the Dhahran Waste Water Lake recently we flushed an Osprey from the waters edge, Luckily the bird flew around and gave some nice photographic opportunities as it flew past. This bird has been around fortwo months now and I have seen it fishing once at the lake where it caught a reasonably sized Tilapia. It has taken a liking to sitting on one of the danger signs and has also been seen flying over other areas of the camp on occasions. Osprey is an unusual species for the camp, although this one has taken a liking for the area and will hopefully continue to be seen.
