24/01/2012 at Pivot Fields and Khiran

I visited with British and German groups Pivot fields in the morning and the afternoon was spent in south place called Khiran. Pivot Fields yeilded Steppe Eagle, Eastern Imperial Eagle, 3 Spotted Eagles, Hen Harrier, Kestrel, 6 Black Kites, Long-legged Buzzard and Shikra. Other birds seen at Pivot Fields were Hoopoe, and White-throated Kingfisher. In Khiran we saw 2 Red-tailed Wheatears and Mourning Wheatear. On our way back to city we stopped by Fahaheel park where Woodlark was still present.
