General Site Description:
The town of Fahaheel is south of Kuwait City and has a public Park and a shoreline across the road. Access is open and there are a few fast food outlets inside the Park. The Park is grassed with some mature trees and shrubs, but very popular with the general public on weekends. So for birding, it is best to visit early in the morning.
Although small, the park is a sea of green in an urban and coastal environment and has the usual resident species. However during spring, numbers of passage migrants stop over to rest and refuel in the safety of the large trees. Some of the more usual migrants include; Eurasian Hoopoe, Common Redstart, Masked Shrike, Common Chiffchaff and Willow Warbler, whilst Wood Lark has also been recorded on the grassy lawns. More recently, Ashy Drongo was recorded at this site in winter and Red-spotted Bluethroat and Rufous-tailed Scrub Robin have also made an appearance. Ruppells Weaver appears to be establishing itself in this location and there has been signs of breeding Walking over the road to the shoreline, low tide has produced many Waders, Gulls and Terns and occasionally Socotra Cormorant flying by.
No other biodiversity of interest.
Consider proposing an Environmental Information Board highlighting some of the resident and migratory birds at this site.
