Some good birds in and around Jubail



There are some good areas for birdwatching in Jubail but they take some looking for. The birds that frequent these areas are also good at times and again take some looking for. Whilst birding the area recently I have come across a few good birds including a Citrine Wagtail, and a fly past Long-legged Buzzard.

This species appears to be coming more regular in the Jubail area in recent years. Another bird of prey that can be seen in Jubail is the a species that is invariably found near water in the winter months.

These birds will be departing the region soon, heading back to their breeding grounds to the northeast. Other winter visitors include a small flock of Common Starling, Western Cattle Egrets, several Great Cormorants and Black-headed Gulls a six Pied Kingfishers. Other birds seen included Common Moorhen, Squacco Heron, Ruff, Marsh and Slender-billed Gull.
