ISRAEL 14 – 28 March 2009

Owain Gabb and Tim Sykes

This is a summary of a fortnight of birding in Israel.
During our trip we travelled from Northern to Southern Israel, beginning at Ma’agan Mikhael on the Mediterranean coast, then moving to Mount Hermon on the Syrian Border, before working our way gradually down through Hula, the Golan Heights and the Dead Sea Region for an extended stay in the Eilat area.
We hope that the following account, which includes detailed information on birds, sites and accommodation, provides other birders planning an Israel trip a good basis from which to develop an itinerary.
