This week is the week for Cinereous Bunting passage on the Gilboa. I've never been able to catch up with these enigmatic and delightful birds until now.
Below are a selection of photos from today. Possibly up to six individuals here. Avner and David found eight this morning including one seminowi. Interestingly only one female was seen - the rest were males.
Not in focus but two buntings and a Long-billed Pipit in the same frame
Other birds were Cretzscmar's Buntings (many),
Masses of Lesser Kestrels - about 35-40,
Great Spotted Eagle (with Pallid Swift for scale),
White Storks (many),
Osprey, many Lesser Whitethroats, Olivaceous Warblers, Chiffchaffs, lots of butterflies,
and some wonderful flora.
Many thanks for a wonderful time today Avner and David.
