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

28/04/2012 at Al Abraq Al Khabari

I visited this morning Al Abraq. Clearly new species were Thrush Nightingale, Red-backed Shrikes and European Nightjar. I wasn’t necessarily prepared to photograph waders in the desert but one isolated farm with nice pool of fresh water makes a big difference. First I came across with two Basra Reed Warblers and Upcher’s Warbler.
