Birds Sightings from Kuwait: owned and managed by AbdulRahman Al-Sirhan

07/11/2012 at Jahra Pool Reserve

This morning I received phone call from Khaled Al Ghanem. Khaled told me that Kuwaiti birdwatcher and photographer Ouda had found 4 Long-tailed Ducks from Jahra Pool Reserve. I got excited although I have seen hundreds of thousands of them in Finland. This species is first for Kuwait if accepted by KORC. So straight away toward JPR as many others did too. In one point the birds came relatively close allowing us to photograph them.
