And the commonest migrant is: Ring Ouzel!

Went birding today at Winterton Dunes NNR. I knew weather was not good for migrants but I did expect a bit more than what I had. The commonest migrant was Ring Ouzel... I had two very shy and mobile group - first three females (I think) and then another group of six males. Next migrant was Swallow with six. Other than that very little - not even a Wheatear. On the sea 8 Arctic Terns and one latish Red-throated Diver. 
Three Adders snuck away in the heather - no photos of them either but found this impressive intact skin:

Skyfull of skylark song - that's always nice

I always like Stock Doves - maybe because they're rare in Israel
