Nice to get back home after a week of bloody cranes all over the place. I had a couple of free hours this morning so went for a quick drive along the Urim powerline in the NW Negev. Didn't see too much, in fact raptors were rather few. Perhaps due to the fact that there is little raptor food - saw zero lapwings, few doves and starlings. Only skylarks in good numbers, with some calandras amongst them.
This powerful juv. Saker was sat on its regular pylon. What a bird!

Only buzzards showed in good numbers, especially long-legs. I managed to screw this take-off shot:
