Update to this posting:

Seems that the ID of the bird is correct. I have received couple of confirmations outside of Kuwait stating that indeed the bird is Dusky Warbler (Phylloscopus fuscatus)

This morning I just did my regukar visit to Jahra Farms. After a handshake with Ali, supervisor of the farms, I entered into his side of the farms. Immediately I noticed a call of warbler that I couldn’t identify. After finding the bird I started photographing. One of the most striking feature was a call. It resembled very much a call of lLesser Whitethroat. Secondly the bird kept low by flying low and many times hoping on the ground. My initial view was Dusky Warbler, but I need confirmation from more experienced birders. I’m sorry for poor quality of the pictures due to limited light. Shutter speed was only 1/30 sec. Todayt happened to be really cloudy day with some little rain. This species, if accepted by KORC, woukd be first for Kuwait.
