A second calendar year Russian Greater White-fronted Goose was found in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia last week with details here http://www.birdsofsaudiarabia.com/20...ose-anser.html
I have no experience of Russian sub-speices albifrons but this bird appears to be of this sub-species which is the one that occurs in Israel, although other eastern sub-species are fairly similar. No ages or sub-species have been noted in Saudi Arabia as far as I am aware so although the expected sub-species it is still something new for the bird records of the country.
I am afraid the photos are not the best as they were all taken into the sun with these being the best ones of it on the ground and in flight.
Any details of Greater White-fronted Goose in Saudi Arabia would be welcome as I only know of the following:-
Two immature birds seen on a small treated sewage effluent pond at Dhahran Camp 14th November 1985
Four birds at Sabkhat Al Fasl 16th November 2007 two of which were shot by a hunter
Nine birds at Dhahran Hills percolation pond 13th to 22nd February 2008.
One record from the Riyadh area prior to 1981.
