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

16/01/2010 second record of Lesser Flamingo for Kuwait

I was doing our regular wader count with Brian in Doha area when Rashed Al-Hajji called and told that he had found Lesser Flamingo. We had to rush quickly to the site near Maturnity Hospital in Sulaibikhat. (Same place where we had the first record on 15. Dec. 2007)  On our way we checked Manchester Club where we saw 60+ Crab Plovers. Lesser Flamingo was still present when we arrived and we saw it very well.
