Citrine Wagtail

Male Citrine Wagtails are truly stuning birds. This individual at Sansana Resrvior this morning was almost luminous in the early morning sun.

Other interesting passage birds around the water were a single Black-headed Wagtail among the Pieds,  Little Stints,
Black-winged Stilt, Ruff. A few Pallid Swifts swooped in to skim the water.

Stopped in at Wadi Olim on the way home. Olivaceous (below), Cetti's, Willow Warblers, Chiffchaffs and Blackcaps were abundant in the reeds.
