Despite the heat we had a relatively good catch with mainly Lesser Whitethroats, Eastern Orphean and Olivaceous Warblers, and star bird of the morning - Olive-tree Warbler.
Olive-tree WarblerThere was one interesting environmental factor that negatively effected our catch in some of the nets near the forest below us. There is a new group of ultra-orthodox jews that do some kind of spiritual healing by shouting! They stand around in the forest (this morning 2-3 females and 2 males present) and shout their heads off for hours! I would call it something like counter-Vipassana... So anyway the adjacent nets didn't catch much. But it's quite an amusing show, daily, for free: Only in Jerusalem!!!
