Eilat spring migration festival 2011 - day 5 (evening)

Last night was 'Rambo night' - a trip north to look for Nubian Nightjars and Hume's (Tawny) Owls. Our first sighting of a Nubian Nightjar came quickly, before we had even arrived at the favoured site. At the site, we managed to get good views of two or three birds as they sat on the tracks around the saltmarsh. Then we moved onto the Hume's Owl site, where we quickly located a pair of calling birds that gave fantastic scope views as they sat on the cliff face.
WARNING: This movie contains no bird footage... though it does contain a recording of a male Hume's Owl!
