More larks in the Arava

This more I checked an atlas box adjacent to the Dunn's Lark site from Saturday. I dropped Hadoram Shirihai at first light at that site for some sound recording of their amazing song, and I went off to my box.
My box was pretty good too, with three singing Dunn's Larks, one singing Hoopoe Lark, and three singing Bar-tailed Larks. All females were absent - I guess they are on eggs at the moment.

Bar-tailed Lark

There were quite a few Spotted Sandgrouse feeding on the stony plains there:

Also one Crowned Sandgrouse flew over, and I had three displaying CCC's. Of the migrants the only bird of note was a group of three Crag Martins.
