Migration is in full swing - along the Besor stream this morning Song Thrushes and Snipe were moving through and the crake patch from last autumn was repopulated with Spotted and Little Crakes. I really enjoy watching crakes and patience really pays off with these birds. After a few minutes of quiet this Spotted C came out from cover to feed by the reed edges.
Eventually I saw two Spotted and one very elusive Little Crake in this one short stretch of accessible stream.
As well as the usual warblers - Reed, Cetti's,
A (the?) couple of Penduline Tits were also in the reeds - great views but awful light.
Finally, it was a good morning for harriers.
Hen - cracking male.
And many Marsh moving through, including this male hunting (successfully) over the Nir Oz fields.
