This morning, I received a photo form a local Eilat photographer - Shimon Shiff, who said that he think he was looking on an Irania (the Hebrew name of White-throated Robin) in one of Eilat public gardens. Indeed this was a juv' Irania, which is probably on his way south after breeding somewhere between Mt. Hermon and Turkey - Iran. Well done Shimon for changing the nuclear issue from Iran and letting us taste some goodies from this wonderful ornithological area.
Later this evening I will head north to the British Bird Fair in Rutland (Marque 2 Stand 50-51) in order to promote the Eilat Bird Festival. Just before I leave home, I went for a short visit at North beach and K20 and found nothing new, except for the "regular" waders (Greenshanks, Little Stints, Ringed Plovers, Marsh Sandpipers, Redshanks...) and Terns (Caspian, White-cheeked) which were reported earlier this month already. A first Whiskered Tern for the season was the only nice addition.
