Met a group from singapore, which came to do some birding for the second time with me, in Eilat and from there we started birding in Eilat area heading in time to the Negev area. We watched quite a lot of birds, nothing rare though. Some of the birds worth mentioning are:Sinai rose finch, Imperial eagle, crouned sandgrouse and many wheatear sp.

Found my self again guiding another tour along the Carmel coast. This time went with a nice Family from the states.
We had a good time wondering along the fishing ponds and the coast.
Had some nice views at waders and sea birds and finished the day at a roosting site for Great Cormorants. We was just leaving as they started to appear as we arrived a bit early and lost our patience and in additon- the Mosquitoes just arrived. So, we decided to leave, though we did manage to see the begining of the arrival of the Great Cormorants. All in all, it was an excellent day.
Went again on March 14tn to Beit shean valley. Guided an Excellent Birder from the states and had a realy good time (thanks, Matt).
