07/12/2013 Streak-throated Swallow is still at JPR today. A second for WP.

This morning as I was preparing to leave home I received a call from Mike Pope saying that the Streak-throaed Swallow is still at Jahra Pool Reserve.  I went there and saw the bird and had a chance to photograph it. This a first for Kuwait and the 400th addition to Kuwait Bird List.

This is probably the 2nd for Western Palearctic list as defined by AERC. The first was found in Egypt on 19/11/2003.
