South Africa (ZA)   A first for Kuwait at Jahra East Outfall  -  Categories: Rarities  -  @ 10:19:06 am

Week 18, 27 April 2008 - Jahra East Outfall

We have visiting group of French birders and with their experience have found and photographed a first for Kuwait, in the form of an Oriental Pratincole (Glareola maldivarum). Digi-scoped Images by Pierre Crochette


The bird was seen with a flock of Collared Pratincoles, which gave the oppurtunity to compare and verify the differences between the two species. Oriental was separated from Collared by: shorter tail, shorter bill with thicker base and less red to the base than Collared, noticealbly shorter legs and lack of white trailing edge in flight
