Pintail Snipe

Whoops! I thought I had a Great Snipe but it was re-identified this morning by Barak Granit as a mega rare Pintail Snipe. Sometimes it feels really good to be wrong.

A big find for me yesterday around the Nir Oz sewage pools. Pintail Snipe!

Only one Spotted Crake around but still a few Water Rail.
