Unfortunately my main memory card died, and I haven't been able to recover my images from it yet. Thursday morning I surveyed Mt. Amasa area again, part of the breeding atlas project of that region. Went there to confirm breeding of the important species there, and indeed I found families of Long-billed Pipit, many Eastern Black-eared Wheatears, some nests of Rock Sparrow, and Spectacled Warblers in second breeding cycle. Rather few migrants in this barren habitat, just some Masked Shrikes and Blackcaps in the wadis. Cool weather meant big numbers of low-flying swifts - alpine, pallid and common in hundreds.
