I’ve just re-discovered this site, having not visited it for some time, and found out what a great resource the forum is in addition to the trip reports available. I’ve booked a flight to Israel next week. It’s my 4th trip and I’m planning a fairly laid-back and flexible week combining birds, mammals and general natural history, mainly in Negev/Arava. I’ve just read through Steve Babb’s post asking for gen on Hyena and thought I’d follow up with a request on any particular recent hot spots for this species and/or Wolf. I’ve also just had contact also with Mark Hows who gave some more details of their sightings last year, so will try that spot out for sure (by Mitzpe Ramon), but if anyone has any more recent tips, that would be greatly appreciated.
