Marbled Duck was the other good bird of the day. These are lovely little ducks and I've often seen them here. Like most wildfowl they keep a very respectful distance from people. This one kept a steady 150 m away.
And this flew off as soon as I appeared over the reservoir bank.
In other news, last weekend we had another excursion to Urim (thank you, Yariv) and had great views of the Saker.
Love those pylons! Saker Falcon with Long Legged Buzzard taking the Stalls. Several Eastern Imperial Eagles around as well.
