The last few Egyptian Nightjars are still present in Jubail although I suspect this will be last time I see them this year.

I saw five birds in different locations during the day, but they normally leave in early September. Wader numbers continue to build with large numbers of Common Ringed Plovers seen and smaller numbers of Terek Sandpipers and Grey Plovers.

Numbers of Squacco herons are increasing steadily with well over fifty birds seen and a couple of the less common also present.
