27/01/2010 a one day trip to Saudi Arabia, south of Kuwait border by 25Km.
We Saad Al-Nouri, Ouda Al-Bathali and AbdulRahman Al-Sirhan wanted to explore the Wadi Al-Batin, it is situated close to the border between Kuwait and Iraq and closed for security reasons, our aim was to search for some plants and birds, so we decided to go to Saudi Arabia as the Wadi continues to Saudi Arabia.
Our highlight of the trip was a Pharaoh Eagle Owl, Bubo ascalaphus desertorum. We also found Temminck’s Lark 4, Desert lark 2, Hoopoe Lark 4.
