Birding Israel

Mike Alibone

Mike explores this small, Middle Eastern country’s dramatic habitat diversity and its influence on the distribution of many  birds, along with the importance of its geographical position as a key migration flyway for some of the  world’s most vulnerable species. The talk includes an overview of the key birding sites, providing an insight into the birds which are likely to be encountered during autumn, winter and spring and highlights recent regional conservation initiatives for migrants, wintering and breeding birds.
