21/02/2011 at Al Abraq Al Khabari + two recent other pics
I visited North-Western Jahra Bay on 18 Feb. with Brian. After scanning birds over there we managed to see 6 Great Crested Grebes which are not so common in Kuwait. Next day I checked alone Pivot Fields noting that Indian Roller is still around but I wasn’t able to relocate Pygmy Cormorant anymore.
This morning I visitet Al Abraq. Hume’s Leaf Warbler was still there calling quite actively and finally I managed to get a dicent photo. An other interesting Phylloscopus was Mountain Chiffchaff. Some Song Thrushes and 1 Blackbird continue their wintering. On the other hand 2 Hoopoes represent early migrants like Meadow Pipits too.
In this connection I ask all those visiting groups who are coming in April and I haven’t been in touch recenty kindly to contact me to double check that everything is in order.
