Slender billed gull
White-winged black - one individual at km20
Greater flamingo in splendid cololur
Terek sandpiper - we found two individuals at the Bird Park, Eilat
Marsh sandpiper - commoner than redshank
Temminck's stint - we found 4 individuals at Ma'agan Michael
Avocet - very familiar
Black tailed godwit
Greater sandplover - commonly seen at km20
Little ringed plover
Kentish plover - the rufous capped males kept a distance.
Spur-winged plover - 'vocal and noisy' as the Collins Guide puts in.
Great white egret in the process of catching a fish.
Stone curlew - almost the last bird we saw on the trip. This individual was found at Ma'agan Michael.
Purple heron - stunning birds!
Squacco heron - these birds suddenly appear in a flash of white wings, otherwise they can be remarkably cryptic and hard to see (except when they are standing on agricultural machinery).
Night heron - a few seen in the south, large numbers at Ma'agan Michael, in the north.
This is mainly a record of some of the birds I've seen. Many of the images are, at best, record shots.
