I wentout with Avi Meir and found 2 beautiful Egyptian Nightjars!After an absence of a year they are back and I hope that they will stay until I am back to try and get at least a record shot of one of them. Also there was the residentPharaoh Eagle Owlwhich thanks to Avi, now we have a decent photoof it!
