I decided to visit the Al Wakrah beach again as there was an incoming tide in the afternoon. Unfortunately it was not very "high" so did not push up too far. Despite the ever present traffic on the beach I still managed to have some success.
A Slender-billed Gull in full cry
A Little Stint wading in deep water. Normally they are seen moving rapidly along the beach just above the water line
A nice crisp image of a Bar-tailed Godwit
A Ruddy Turnstone in smart Summer plumage with the rich chestnut coloured markings on the back visible
A Lesser Sand Plover in breeding plumage
A Kentish Plover male in breeding plumage. I have been surprised at how few of these birds I have seen. They have been far outnumbered by the Lesser Sand Plovers this Spring
A Terek Sandpiper running at full tilt across the beach
Other species included: Black Oystercatcher, Common Mynah, White-eared Bulbul, Western Reef Heron, Grey Plover, Osprey and the rest.
