English (IE)   Black-winged Kite new species for Bahrain  -  Categories: Bahrain obs by BK  -  @ 10:03:51 pm

Yesterday afternoon Abdulla and I went to the chicken farm with a visiting birder from US. When we arrived Abdulla spotted a raptor which was different from the usual harriers. It hovered in the wind and folded its wings dropping directly down out of the sky and back up again. We quickly realised it was a kite. I managed to take a few distant photos of it in the fading light. This is the first record of Black-winged Kite in Bahrain and another first for the Bahrain list.
