Whilst birding the Jubail area recently I saw a few interesting herons. Many Grey Herons and Western Great Egrets were flying around but also in amongst them was a single . Numbers of are also increasing as winter arrives with many juvenile birds.

Wader numbers are decreasing but the odd can still be found amongst the commoner Little Stints and Kentish Plovers.

Otherwise it is resident species that are making up the numbers with Indian (Clamorous) Reed Warblers being seen in good number as are Grey-headed Swamphens.
