From Eilat, take the Ovda road for about 3-4km. After climbing upwards, the road dips again before its ascent of Mount Yoash. Wadi Shelomo is in this dip, and a car park can be used on the right hand side of the road. Strictly speaking, the signposts indicate that Wadi Shelomo is the one to the left (running to the south-west), with Wadi Metalin to the right. It is the latter which held Red-tailed Wheatear during our stay. Wadi Shelomo is well worth a walk - we saw House Bunting, Palestine Sunbird, Subalpine Warbler, and a selection of Orphean Warblers. With the correct winds, good numbers of raptors pass overhead.
