Eilat spring migration festival 2011 - day 3

It was another early start in Eilat this morning with the minibus leaving at 4am, heading to Nizzana in search of desert species. It was a long day but we managed a good haul and, in addition to the species features in the film clip below, we managed to see Bonelli's, Lesser Spotted, Short-toed & Steppe Eagle, Cretzschmar's Bunting, Rüppell's Warbler, Masked Shrike, Eastern Bonelli's Warbler, and Eastern Orphean Warbler.
Given the nature of the terrain we were birding in, a lot of the birds have been filmed from the car, so please do excuse the slightly shaky footage of some of the species!
