This was a very cooperative individual. The other bird was much more elusive.
A Wryneck and Woodchat Shrike, also at Sde Boker, were new for me this Spring.
Wrynecks - very uncooperative.
It makes a real change to be in the central Negev region. Arabian Babblers and Blackstarts are common fare.
Back at Nir Oz I saw this swarm of bees in the middle of the football pitch. Not sure why they swarm or why they chose this particular place.
