Today was all about flocks . . .

. . . of 300+ Lapwings,

49 Golden Plover,

and many hundreds of Skylarks.
The GP flock has been increasing steadily from 7 to 17 yesterday to 50 today.

Both Eastern Imperial Eagles were in view today. The juv appears to have suffered some shotgun damage - there's a special place in hell for people who do this.

This Booted Eagle is a new one for me at Nir Oz. Despite the blurriness of the photo the 'landing lights' can clearly be seen.
Interesting size comparison with this Black Kite.

It was also good to the see the Sociable Plovers, Hen Harriers and a pair of Isabelline Wheatear.
