Since my host service screwed something up with my domain,
here you go on G+ for now with the latest island beach clean-up at Qaru island:

or FB, if that doesn't work,...

Qaru is a small island off the coast of Kuwait, near the Saudi border. The Coast guard is stationed there and birds use it as a resting ground during migration and breeding there during summer.
It is also important for the ongoing turtle conservation program. Any help on IDs of the (mostly dead) animals is welcome!

Bird count of the day: Approx 5 Black-headed Gulls, 1 or 2 possible Caspian or Heuglin's Gulls (one oiled), 1 Ringed Plover, 8 House Sparrows

For the ones interested, some Info on the Turtle Conservation project:

In case someone that has been to Kuwait and has records of sightings here - AND is on Project Noah:

I have created a mission to show Kuwait's Biodiversity

If you want to - I'll be happy to see you there!

More Flamingo shootings.

Last week one shooter snuck into the nature preserve at Jahra, but kicked out.

Seems he (or someone else) managed to go on a Flamingo rampage anyway:
