Pied Kingfisher – Dhahran Waste Water Lake

The Pied Kingfisher at Dhahran Waste Water Lake, found at the start of the year, is still present on the lake in its favourite spot of some dead twigs under a large green tree on the water’s edge. It has now been present for more than two months and may stay for a few more weeks before departing back to its breeding area. It is possible to get quite close to the bird on foot if you keep hidden behind the tree, but as soon as the bird notices you it flies off.
