In the last few days autumn migration is gaining speed, billions of migratory birds are moving south towards their African wintering grounds. Many millions pass through Israel. I hope that the coming days will bring news about interesting captures or about the first foreign controls of the season.

This Little Stint was ringed by me last week at Atlit on the Mediterranean coast south of Haifa. Shorebirds are among the earliest autumn migrants in Israel.
