Last of the Yellow Wagtails – Dhahran Cricket Field

Yellow Wagtails have been plentiful this spring, with hundreds seen on some days. Over the last week numbers have been declining but there are still tens to be seen most days including various sub-species such as Grey-headed, Yellow-headed and Sykes’s Wagtails. I have not been able to get to the area at first light recently and by the time I have arrived the light has not been so good but I still managed to take a few reasonable photos of some of them. The autumn is not as good as the spring for this species and birds are nt in as good plumage either so I have spent quite a lot of time enjoying the birds over the past month or so.
