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

23/01/2010 Hume’s Wheatear continues wintering in SAANR

I visited the site this morning with Abdulmohsen Al-Suraye and Khaled Al-Ghanem. In early morning after cold night +10C the bird spent considerably long time just warming up. By 9.30 it started to catch insects. It shares big wadi with Mourning Wheatear both having their own territories. Desert Warbler wasn’t problem in his territory.
