Tough Warblers

Arabian Warbler was found collecting food and to our surprise was seen feeding a juvenile on the ground and in the open. A privilage for such a rare bird.
The third image is the best I could manage of an extremely elusive Menetries's Warbler that spent a week living in a lone bush at Yotvata fields but could vanish for ages at a time. It had a jizz quite different from other sylvia warblers, keeping close to the ground in cover and constanly wagging it's cocked tail.
