As the summer holidays edge to a close, I squeezed in a quick visit to Jahra Pools after photographing the sunrise on the Corniche.
Much of the same birds were seen as on the previous visit, but with migration in progress, there is always a possibility of something unusual or different.
There were a number of Heron and Egret species around the various pools and a small flock of Little Egrets was still present
