Migratory birds are currently going through Kuwait and first wintering ones have just arrived. Personally my latest Golden Oriole ever here in Kuwait showed up this morning at Al Abraq. I saw at least 8 Red-breasted Flycatchers, c. 20 Little Egrets, 3 Squacco Herons, Cattle Egret, Sparrowhawk, Accipiter sp., Steppe Eagle, Masked Shrike, two Rock Thrushes and 3 Grey Wagtails. About wintering birds I saw two Stonechats, Desert Wheatear and my first White Wagtail this autumn. At Jahra Pool Reserve I found c. 40 Carganeys, two Common Kingfishers, 5 Common Snipe, 4 Great White Egrets, 15 Blue-cheeked Bee-eaters, 5 Yellow Wagtails and Steppe Buzzard.
