21/02/2011 at Abraq Al Habari + 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.
