Both places have resident purple swamphen.
Both have a large number of herons. This time there were western reef heron, grey heron and great white egret present.
There was a large variety of ducks present at Jahra pools. These included ferruginous duck, gadwell, garganey, pintail, tufted duck and wigeon.
The scrub land and coastal land adjacent to the pools also had interesting birds. Two common snipe and a jack snipe flushed in one area. Overhead two common swift flew over.
Elsewhere, on scrub land a Daurian shrike was perched. Two marsh harrier were patrolling all over.
greater spotted eagle
The last bird before sunset and the last of my trip was a greater spotted eagle.
Over the weekend I put 73 species on my brand new Kuwait list and gained 3 lifers. None of this would have been possible without the hospitality of Markus Craig and Mike Pope.
