Champions of The Flyway 2016

On March 29th I was involved in this year's Champions of The Flyway bird race held in Southern Israel. The whole idea was to raise money towards stopping the illegal hunting in Greece. Team Extremadura and I contributed towards raising of $70,000!

Of course, there was birding to be had in and around Eilat and into the Negev Desert. As I arrived a few days before the race I took full advantage of the time sifting through migrants and looking up at the magnificent kettles of migrating raptors.

The previous “largest tourbillon” in the world claim best replica watches sites to buy from goes to also Swiss Franck Muller for the Giga Tourbillon timepieces it is known to produce. The Giga tourbillon replica watches uk paypal is actually a bit more of a traditional tourbillon in both operation and usage. It has a 20mm-wide tourbillon case that spins once per minute and is wound more or less normally. Kerbedanz bast replica watches uk review ups the Giga Tourbillon’s girth by offering a 27mm-wide tourbillon, but this time one that spins more slowly — once every six minutes.
