This was my last outing with our friend Markus Craig, as he leaves Kuwait tonight for their next posting. So, we headed to Jahra Pools where we also met up with Omar Al Shaheen.
We had a slow drive around JPR finding and enjoying a 1st year Short-toed Snake Eagle - those eyes!
|Short-toed Snake Eagle (Circaetus gallicus)|
A couple of Collared Pratincole. Interesting how they throw their head up in flight occasionally..
|Collared Pratincole (Glareola pratincola)|
And an unexpected Spur-winged Plover.

At the beach, we found the long staying Little Gull and a bonus Arctic Tern for Markus (8th record for Kuwait).
All to soon, it was time to say farewell and look forward to catching up again soon, somewhere in the world!
