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

22/10/2011 at Jahra Pool Reserve

I visited in the morning JPR with Mike Newey. Morning was very clear and wind was blowing from North. Raptor migration was good. We saw tens of  Steppe Eagles, two Short-toed Eeagles, Imperial Eagle, Griffon Vulture and Black Stork over there.
