Pics gone

I totally forgot that the pics hosted on my old blog, will be gone here too after the BIG BOOM CRASH.... sigh

Guess I'll just over time add them again, whenever I add it on my new blog.

But looking at it from the bright side, at least some of the texts are saved over here

Hello Kuwait

Posted Thursday 22nd July 2010 at 06:02 by NicoleB
We are back in Kuwait since Monday.
Last time I've been here, I haven't been into birding.
This time around I've already seen my first Lifer.
Happy me

Meet the White-eared Bulbul (I hope I get better shots one of these days):

Around Lunch time when I was walking the dogs, I saw this guy perched on top of a Lamp post.
I didn’t have my camera with me. I should know better by now, during migration time.
By the time I came back from the house with the camera, he was gone.

This afternoon I went for a walk around the compound with the dogs - with my camera, to look for this guy....

Just after waking up this morning, hubby told me that there’s a big bird on the football field.
For hubby that can be anything from a crow to a heron.
In this case it was a Purple Heron.
