  • Kuwait Feb 10-17

    Not just birding today, but over the past week in Kuwait. I thought I would post some photos of the trip.

    The first batch being Bluethroat (in a patch of bushes with two singing Menetries's Warblers);

    Caspian Stonechat (one of over 25 seen);

    two Hypocolius (over 60 seen on 15th);

    Lesser Flamingo.

    ...another batch..

    Isabelline Shrike, one of c.20 seen;

    Turkestan Shrike - an adult female and the only one seen;

    a possible Armenian Stonechat seen at Al Abraq and showed minimal white at very bases of tail;

    another Caspian Stonechat - how good are these?;

    Persian Wheatear.

      ..final set...but there's more if you like.

      The first a female 'eastern' stonechat, almost certainly Caspian, but you simply can't do them in the field from Siberian - see http://nubijar.blogspot.com/2011/11/...tonechats.html and scroll down to female photos;

      part of the gull feast, with barabensis heuglini and cachinnans;

      a fishy Isabelline Wheatear;

      Siberian Pipit - different not only in plumage but call from American.

            Thanks Josh and here are two more of the pipit - not great, but they are digiscopes.

            I think this may be the same bird from earlier in the year - http://www.flickr.com/photos/rashed1...n/photostream/

              I have just added some video of the Caspian Stonechats to my youtube account - there are freeze frames to show variability of tail pattern.
