20/01/2015 at Sulaibikhat Bay

The Lesser Flamingo (3rd record if accepted by KORC) that was found at free zone on 3rd November 2014 by Kane Brides, Robie Hawkins and A Al-Sirhan, then disappeared. Reappeared again on 3rd of January 2015.

Today I managed to record the highest ever  daily count of the Greater Flamingo, 5186 birds was at only Sulaibikhat Bay. Kadma Bay would hold about 400-500 birds.

Also I also managed to record the highest ever daily count of Pied Avocet, 380 birds at Sulaibikhat Bay.

Other interesting birds include: Carb-plover 495, Dunlin 10695, Black-headed Gull 3357, Common Gull 8 (Yesterday at JPR), Eurasian Oystercatcher 2, Eurasian Whimbrel 3, Steppe Eagle 1, Great Black-headed Gull 2,  Common Redshank 1038, Gull-billed Tern 102, Common Kingfisher 1.
