Eilat spring migration festival 2011 - day 2

It's the second day of the spring migration festival here in Eilat, and the first full day of tours. I opted to head up to the Dead Sea in search of some of the specialities that area has to offer. Led by Itai Shanni, our group of six left the hotel at 5am to head north. The array of species on offer was amazing, though frustratingly several proved to be just that bit too flightly, flittly or scuttly for me to keep up with. The result: good views of Sand Partridge, Cyprus Pied Wheatear, Fan-tailed Raven, Scrub Warbler, Long-legged Buzzard, and Graceful Prinia but no usable footage of any! Here's a summary of the day with some birds I did manage to film:
