08/02/2010 at Jahra Pool Reserve
Jahra Pool Reserve is very much welcomed site with fresh water and reedbeds. It provides excellent environment for those birds that we used to find at Jarra East Outfall. The latter one being under threat we have now a good alternative and it is safe for birds. Purple Swamp-hens are calling intensively and we can expect them to breed again. This is also the site for Basra Reed Warbler and many other species. Today I managed to photograph Little Crake, Baillon’s Crake, Little Grebe and Bluethroat.
Little Crake (Porzana parva)
Baillon’s Crake (Porzana pusilla)
Little Grebe (Tachybaptus ruficollis)
Bluethroat (Luscinia svecica)
