Israel: Day 20

A fairly regulation day today, Levant Sparrowhawks have almost completely finished, with only 14 over my watchpoint today, though ironically I got some of my closest views of this species, with birds coming out of a roost in nearby trees. Still too far for proper photos though, which is a shame as the males in particular are really smart little raptors.

It was a good day for Lesser Spotted Eagles, I haven't seen the combined totals yet but I saw just over 2000, and the other stations recorded similar numbers, still nowhere near the expected peak days though.
