Returning to the northern Nir Oz fields was a good idea. A large pipit flew by and landed about 10 m from the car. I only managed a short view but it was enough. Broad supercilium, pale lores, strong bill, dark streaks on buff breast and white underparts told me this was a textbook Richard's pipit - my first for Nir Oz.
Black kites again in abundance utilizing the agricultural machinery as convenient perches.
