I visited in the morning JPR with Mike Newey. Morning was very clear and wind was blowing from North. Raptor migration was good. We saw tens of  Steppe Eagles, two Short-toed Eeagles, Imperial Eagle, Griffon Vulture and Black Stork over there.

Juvenile Eastern Imperial Eagle (Aquila heliaca)

Subadult Steppe Eagle (Aquila nipalensis)

Juvenile Griffon Vulture (Gyps fulvus)

Black Stork (Ciconia nigra) While checking eagles around I came across with this image. Black Stork is relatively rare bird in Kuwait.
