This is the second year in a row that I have recorded male Basra Reed Warblers singing in the reed along the Riyadh River in Al Ha'ir. Last year I located three singing males in the same area. Intriguingly, there was a BB survey conducted there back in the 1990s and it was suspected then that the species may be breeding in the area.
This is the most up-to-date checklist of bird species and subspecies recorded in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, including Iran and the Arabian Peninsula – the ‘greater’ Western Palearctic. Species are presented in systematic order, and each species entry includes scientific and English names, taxonomic notes, distribution and range/vagrancy occurrences within the region.
