24/1/2009 on Green Island, at Souq Sharq and Jahra Farms

Visitors from England, Dominic Mitchell and  Royston Beddard  + myself, visited Green Island this morning for Hypocolius and Red-vented Bulbul which were present. Later short stop at Souq Sharq produced, thanks to Dominic, a Common Gull which is not common in Kuwait.  At Jahra Farms we had one more Grey Hypocolius, Indian Roller and Dark-throated Thrush.
