This morning took the kids for a short visit to Tsor'a. It was summer-hot, but still many birds about. Among the many Red-throated and Tawny Pipits there was one Richard's, and a male Desert Wheatear was a good bird for the region.
Later in the morning there was an impressive take-off of Lesser Spotted Eagles. This exceptionally late passage included several hundreds, many of them going down to drink in the nearby reservoir, no doubt because of the crazy heat.
