Separating female Collared and Semi-collared Flycatchers can be impossible in the field - luckily this is a typic female making id much easier. Primary spot reaching to edge of wing, pale grey rump and hindneck, blackish tail with white outers, no white second wing bar etc etc.
Amazing how the light completely changes the bird's appearance - pale grey in direct light, greyish-brown in the shade.
This wryneck was too exhausted to move. Eventually it recovered enough to fly off into the trees to feed.
Desert Finches are breeders at Sde Boker - stunning birds!
Wood Warbler - very pale fronted. Ringed and released by Darren Burns.
Eastern Olivaceous Warbler against the light.
Nightingale - also ringed.
