|Little Egret, one of about 500 individuals in Ma'agan Micha'el.|
|One of 15 Squacco Herons.|
|The sole Spoonbill.|
|One of about ten Purple Herons.|
|2cy male Little Bittern. This species was very easy to see in Ma'agan Micha'el. We saw 14 males on Sunday, they only gave flight views though.|
|The only Spotted Redshank of the trip. Other waders in the fish ponds were Ruffs, Little Stints, Dunlins, Wood Sandpiper, B-w Stilts, single Avocet, Ringed and S-w Plovers.|
|Two Black Terns was a nice surprise and an Israeli-tick for everyone.|
|Little Tern bringing fish gift to it's partner.|
|Prinias and Clamorous Reed Warblers were numorous in reed beds. We counted c.50 of both.|
|Turtle Doves - quite a difference in orbital skin size.|
Yellow-legged Gulls were breeding in islets offshore the beach and had already few youngsters in flight.
Other birds worth of mention were 4 Chukars, a Great Spotted Cuckoo and the first three Cetti's and two Sardinian Warblers for the trip.
In late afternoon, before dipping Painted Snipes third time we visited Pardes Khanna briefly. We didn't get lucky with Nanday Parakeet and I'm not sure if they're even alive anymore. Last observation AFAIK is from March 2012. Anyway, we saw two nice Syrian Woodpeckers and got Great Tit for trip species :)
