Black-headed Bunting

Great morning at Sde Boqer. First off, I saw my first Striped Hyena attempting to cross the road on my way to work. A beautiful beast. It scarpered before I could park and get my camera.

Bird of the Month (for me at least) was found by Darren Burns in the nets this morning. A female Black-headed Bunting! This is the first ringing record at Sde Boqer since May 2008. A great find.

Quite a few species ringed today including Marsh Warbler and Barred Warbler, Crested Lark, Masked Shrike. The tail-end of migration definitely has a few surprises left!
