This single bird flew past HMS CHATHAM, which was 3km due east of the Kwahr at Amaya oil terminal in Iraqi territorial waters. It appears to be the first record of the species in Iraqi.
Canon Ixus through the back of hand-held x10 binoculars, shaky, but got the evidence.
10 miles south of Shatt al Arab waterway, Iraq
