This year has seen a good autumn passage of Spotted Flycathcers through the Eastern Province with numbers seen from Dhahran to Jubail.

The Spotted Flycatcher is a common passage migrant. Recorded between mid-March and mid-June but peaking in May in spring and mid-August to late October in autumn with a peak in September.

Birds have been recorded throughout the Kingdom even in the Empty Quarter. They are likely to turn up almost anywhere and gardens and parks are favourite places for locating them.
