Israel, 22nd-29th November 2012
Join me on
The “Infinite Possibility” Tour
I will be leading a tour November 2012 with James Smith, top guide in all things Israel. Israeli birders call November the month of ‘infinite possibilities’. November has a special Asian flavour. Recent years have included rarities like Blyth’s Pipit, probable Asian Red-rumped Swallow, Kurdistan Wheatear, Pin-tailed Snipe, Siberian Buff-bellied Pipit and Grey Hypocolius. Birds of prey like Long-legged Buzzard, Steppe Eagle, large falcons and Eastern Imperial Eagle are regular. Local colourful specialities like Lichtenstein’s Sandgrouse (+4 other sandgrouse species) and Little Green Bee-eater; the rare Sociable Lapwing, up to 3 types of Eastern Stonechat, common and rarer lark species such as Oriental Skylark, maybe Asian Desert Warbler- in fact too many interesting species to list! Expect to see up to 185 species in a week of inspirational birding. Under-explored by other travel companies- enjoy feeling of having the feeling of having southern Israel to ourselves.
Chance to use state of the art sound recording stuff and all things in a spirit of ‘always discovering’
