This evening I met up with Chris et al. (UK). Driving down south I had some very bad weather, which made me a bit worried about our chances for night watching. However, when we got to the site, the weather settled and was quite OK with no wind and pleasent temperatures. We had cracking views of two Nubian Nightjars, and quite a show by the Desert Eagle Owl. Unfortunately, I was (again!) holding the torch and not the camera...
On the way back home I stopped by the road in the N Dead Sea to take a leak. Soon I heard a male Hume's Owl calling from the cliff above me. What a way to end a great evening!
