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

12/12/2009 Hume’s Wheatear at SAANR

Brian and me visited SAANR today. Tulha was totally dead and we managed to see  only 4 Bar-taied Desert Larks and 1 Hoopoe Lark + 1 Long-legged Buzzard after long drive out there. However, as a last thing we checked one big wadi near entrance. I spotted a wheatear and without carefully looking it  I  just said Mourning Wheatear but luckily Brian really watched the bird and said that it is Hume’s Wheatear. Then I had to rush back to the car to get my camera. This is 8th record for Kuwait.
