Mediterranean Monk Seal in Israel!
Well I’ve never been a so-called “twitcher”, but I might just be this weekend, as a female adult of this endangered and rare species has been spotted at Rosh Hanikra, where it’s apparently seen once-ish a year. The question is: how long do they usually hang around when they’re seen? I’ll find out today. Apparently this individual is known by the local researchers.
Well, next time you’re in Israel, you might be able to add this species to your list – just call Rosh Hanikra and find out if one is present.
