    Excellent Mike, nice feedback form. I can confirm that Dead Sea Sparrows are indeed a worthy enough goal to have a training module improved for :)

    With a duration of just two-and-a-days, this proved to be an extraordinarily productive trip. The basic idea was to visit the Hula Valley for the amazing concentrations of wintering Cranes and other waterbirds, then travel up into the occupied Golan Heights, before dropping down to the Beit...
