Spring days

These are beautiful spring days, nature is completing another cycle; spectacular bloom, buzzing insects and… migrant birds. Last week I ringed, for the first time this season, Ehrenberg's Redstart, Savi's Warbler, Sedge Warbler and Lesser Whitethroat.
On Friday (25/02) at Tzor'a Valley Ringing Station I had 34 birds, most were Chiffchaffs with their unattractive moulted look, Savi's (1), Moustached (1) and Sedge (6) Warblers. Still not too many birds around, so I had much time to photograph the landscape - enjoy!
