Hi Elaine, its just my annual 4-5 day trip I undertake.

Israel is truly great for birds, even if its virtually impossible to get to see some of its best avian secrets these days.

Hi Nick, I take it you mean because of security issues?

Hi Bubbs, no mate I meant Desert Tawny Owl. Unless you go at the exact time of the Birdrace and book on one of the tours.

This trip I paid guides to go to see Sooty Falcons and also to try for Nubian Nightjars, but I was told there was no chance really of going to see Desert Tawny Owls even if you paid.

Perhaps I was wrong to say you can't, because you can during that week in March.
