Then onto Urim - huge flocks of Skylarks, and not too flighty at the moment,
Eastern Imperial Eagle,
and a fly-by Pallid Harrier (attracted by Skylarks, no doubt).
The Jackdaw colony area held a brace each of Water Rail and Moustached Warblers, many Bluethroats, Stonechats, Greenshank, Common Snipe and a single Jack Snipe , Spotted Crake, Sparrowhawk, Kestrels and Greater Spotted Eagle.
The Kingfishers are in good form and showing well.
Many Red-throated Pipits in the fields - lovely birds.
Re'im Reservoir was quiet apart from a very obliging Little Owl
and Spanish Sparrows. These are really common in winter here and one tends to overlook them but the males really are very smart!
Water Pipits are around too.
Closer to home a distant Merlin flew across the fields - not sure if it is the same one that hunts close to Nir Oz or a new individual.
