This morning I went birding in the western fields of Kfar Ruppin. I was joined by Yoav Perlman of the Israel Ornithological Center. First up was a young Peregrine sat on the ground. Then a scan through a Skylark flock yielded a Calandra Lark. In a nearby field, hundreds of Meadow, Red-throated and Caucasian Water Pipits were flying in all directions. We also heard a Richard’s Pipit, and an Oriental Skylark that was also seen.
At the far end of the field, a muddy puddle attracted many pipits. The pipit-fest brought in a Bluethroat and two fantastic Siberian Buff-bellied Pipits.
Another highly enjoyable morning of birding.
