There are so many birding tours out there to choose from that it can be totally overwhelming to figure out which one is right for you. Recently there have also been a number of countries and regions that have become more accessible, making the choice even tougher. Here we will take you through some of the factors that are often considered important and that could make a difference between having a great tour and going back for more, or being disappointed because it was not what you had expected....

Different Class

Posted Monday 18th May 2015 at 00:22 by Green Sandpiper
I've always had a naive and optimistic/ simplistic view of birders and birding, probably because I operate at a level far below any politics or in-fighting. To me, birding is the great leveller, a passion or activity that unites people across social class- where the wealthy but inexperienced birders will defer to impoverished but expert birder whom they would ordinarily seldom com into contact with.

To a degree, this must remain true- I look at my own local group and close birding...

A Roe deer group moved through the fields south of Ayllon beside the houses. I saw too many small birds, particularly seed eaters like a corn bunting, serins and greenfinches.

But the surprise of the day was this wren I saw it while I was trying to photograph one of the many nightingales who were hiding in the underbrush. It is the first photograph that I take of this bird.

I was seeing some storks that crossed over the fields when...

Our effort for Global Big Day and World Migratory Bird Day results in a rare find but few waders.

Our intention for the eBird Global Big Day and World Migratory Bird Day was to search out waders in our local area. We had hoped that a Curlew Sandpiper and a Wood Sandpiper seen earlier in the week would stay, but it was not to be. We started our day at Little Linford Nature Reserve.
It was relatively quiet and we were disappointed not to hear a cuckoo although we did see some...

Upon arrival at Pond of Soto de las Juntas I saw flying over the cliffs a black kite. This bird spends the winter in sub-Saharan Africa and they come to Europe to breed in Spring.
The first ones arrived in late February to the Iberian peninsula but most of them come in April. They will stay until July or August when they will go to wintering to Africa.
On this date they are mating. Couples chase each other. Circling in their persecution they plummeted....
