Kfar Ruppin, 25/OCT/05
Tomer Landsberger

On October 25th, Avner Cohen, Yuval Dax and I were birding in Kfar Ruppin area, Bet Shean Valley. All in all there were plenty of birds around, with the highlight being a flock of 18 Ruddy Shelducks in one of the big reservoirs.
Also worth noting were tens of Common Snipes at the turf fields, including an odd albino, a Merlin and a Golden Plover.
