Western Negev, 26/NOV/05
Eyal Vanunu

The western Negev is now at its best - the fields are loaded with thousands of Skylarks, Corn Buntings, Linnets, and of course, good numbers of wintering Raptors.

I started the mourning at Orim, and apart from the Saker, which was reported and photographed by Tomer, there was a juv. Lanner, 3 Peregrines, Barbary falcon (Tal-Or) and 6 Imperial Eagles, some of them perching on the pylons.
13 Sociable Plovers and 2-3 Dotterels were also around, as well as 6 Merlins and 2-3 Oriental Skylarks.
2 more Sociable Plovers and about 25 Dotterels were seen at Ofakim area.
