WAG's of Kuwait

Week 42, 14 October 2016 - General

I had been to a few places informally this week with the family, but had my camera just in case, for any lone migrants.

If you were expecting Wives and Girlfriends, you may be a little disappointed..

A short visit and walk around the new Al Shaheed Park on the southern boundary of Kuwait City gave a young Barred Warbler

Barred Warbler (Sylvia nisoria)
A single Common Whitethroat

Common Whitethroat (Sylvia communis) 
As well as a young Red-backed Shrike

Red-backed Shrike (Lanius collurio)
and a really scrawny looking Indian Reed Warbler (fresh juvenile or post breeding moulting adult?)

Indian Reed Warbler (Acrocephalus s. brunnescens)
At Baseball with my son, there were 3 White Wagtails foraging next to the pitch, before the practice started

White Wagtail (Motacilla alba)
A visit to one of the Malls on the coast had some early winter Gulls, the first a probable Steppe, but Caspian cant entirely be ruled out either

Caspian Gull (Larus f. barabensis)
and the second, well your guess is as good as mine.....any opinions are welcome

Gull sp..
