Also, and exciting for me as it is a Nir Oz patch tick, was a Mistle Thrush this morning. These are rare winter visitors and great to see.
Other stuff from the last few days - a stunning pale morph Buzzard near Sde Boker,
quite the best dressed Northern Wheatear I've ever seen (Urim fields),
a late juv Red-backed Shrike by the Nir Oz horse paddock.
a Long-eared Owl in the tree just outside the house,
and Lapwings. I love Lapwings for their colours, calls and being harbingers of winter (cool rains, great birds).
