How to Choose a Birding Tour (Part Two of three)

Posted Thursday 21st May 2015 at 10:58 by Rockjumperbirdingtours
Time of year can be a big issue as most people are not able to simply pack up their bags at any time, and most countries have a fairly defined period when the conditions are best suited to birding or travelling in general. We always attempt to pick the best time of year for getting the highest species total or the maximum number of endemic and special species, which is not necessarily when most species are in the area, but this also depends on climatic conditions for example.

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 Sunday 17th May 2015 at 23:22 by Green Sandpiper

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.

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...

Common Cranes (Grus grus) yesterday at Gallows Bridge Farm BBOWT reserve.

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...
