after a number of disappointing mornings, it was a relief to finally have a decent number of birds in the nets. A total of 19 chiffchaffs found there way into the nets which was a station record, only falling a couple short of Eyal's Beer Sheva high for a regional record. there were also a few sylvia warblers around. Then as we were putting the nets away we were greeted with the sight of a net full of Spanish sparrows, just what the doctor ordered. it raised all our spirits after the dismal recent mornings.
