First field day of our wildlife monitoring course, near Modi'in. Started off relatively late so mainly common breeding birds but again great overhead migration with highlights being Pallid Harrier and Booted Eagle. In the afternoon did some botanical surveying training with Ouria - it was great. Ouria took us twitching a rare plant that was found nearby a few days ago - funny to twitch a flower that cannot fly or hide. But it is an impressive plant indeed - a nice bunch of them in a field.
Onosma gigantea - couldn't find the English name
