Jahra Farms has been since Eastern Bonellis Warbler was found on 12.8 actual birding hot spot in Kuwait. Star was still present this morning. However, also new species seem to turn up almost every day. New arrival today was Semi-collared Flycatcher. This species seems to migrate through Kuwait in August in small numbers. (Last year Mike Pope and me found 3 at Al Abrag on 18 Aug.) This has not been known previously.

Blackcap 2, Whitethroat 2, Barred Warbler 1, Upcher’s Warbler 1, Olivaceous Warbler 2, Semi-collared Flycatcher 1, Spotted Flycatcher 2, White-throated Robin 1, Golden Oriole 1, White-throated Kingfisher 1, Rose-ringed Parakeet 2.

Semi-collared Flycatcher obviously 1st summer bird

White-throated Robin most probably 1st summer bird as well
