A wintry morning

Week 47; 24 November 2017 - JPR

A quieter survey today, which is to be expected if you are out every week.

I guess we get spoilt in Kuwait by having the expectation that it will always be good, even if migration has passed.

This morning our 'friend' was seen roosting on a dead Sabkha bush. Temps are now much cooler in the morning, so the birds are only becoming active a little later in the morning as it warms up.

Western Marsh Harrier (Circus aeruginosus)
A little later, one was seen interacting with a murmuring of Common Starlings

Moustached Warblers were seen on a few stops - always a great bird to see.

As expected, Greater Spotted Eagles are still prevalent

Nevertheless, another enjoyable morning spent with my son and topped off with a Egg McMuffin breakfast on the way home
