Had great fun ringing at my CES site in Ashdod this morning. Relatively low numbers but fantastic number of species - 21! Commonest was Common Kingfisher with 12 birds. Along the main stream there were many tens flying around. Acros were well represented with Sedge, Reed, 2 Marsh and four Great Reeds. Other nice species included Little Crake, 3 feldegg Yellow Wagtails, Thrush Nightingale, some Savi's and Willow Warblers and lots more.
Little Crake - 1cy
feldegg Yellow Wagtail, 2cy+ male
Marsh Warbler - 1cy
Equalet Skimmer (Orthetrum chrysostigma)
My swamp - the water is green because it's covered with a thick carpet of Common Duckweed (Lemna minor)
Many thanks to Arad for his admirable help in sauna conditions after a sleepless night.
