This morning at Al Abraq I met Khaled Al-Ghanem and Abdulmohsen Al-Surayea. We stayed chatting together and birding this oasis for three hours.
Highlights of the day, again Crested Honey Buzzards and Shikras. They are migrating now so soon will disappear from our sky, very few might winter in Kuwait.
