Madrid's Manzanares river runned through the western part of the city squeezed between the two directions of the ring highway M-30. The burial of the highway was conducted from 2004 to 2007. The birds however were fairly safe from people or dogs walled into the highway first, and the construction works later.

One is more likely to enjoy tours that are physically demanding or require rugged travelling and camping when you have higher physical fitness and mobility levels. We consider Cameroon, Papua New Guinea, Madagascar and Angola as some of these countries that potential tour participants should consider doing sooner rather than later in the birding careers. At the same time we also advise birders to...
