    Thank you. Do you own a pair? Is light gathering good (or better!)?

    Birdwatching Guide to Oman (2nd edition)

    An article in a recent edition of Birdwatching magazine suggests Sohar sun farms are up and running again - or is this just lazy journalism?

    2 Little Egret on ploughed field with Black headed Gulls at Normanton brook, Westhouses yesterday. Not a rare bird these days but seemed unusual for the area.

    Cuba ID guide

    Which field guide is recommended for Cuba, guys? Garrido's Birds of Cuba or Arlott's Birds of the West Indies or Raffaele's Birds of the West Indies? I do, however, already have a copy of The birds of the Dominican Republic - would that suffice? Oh, and what about the butterflies of that...

    Puerto Calreo Jan

    I'm not expecting too much of this trip and will be on best behaviour (first wedding anniversary etc) but anyone know of decent sites within bike-riding distance of Puerto Calero, Lanzarote? The missus will fall for my suggestion of bike hire for the day rather than car.

    Dry Tortugas birding/camping

    Has anyone birded and camped on the Tortugas during April? How was the experience and what were the logistics? I've made some initial investigations and it seems camping has to be a minimum of 3 nights and all gear and provisions must be taken by oneself. Have people found it worth the effort...

    Planning on doing Big Bend during our next trip to the southern states. Where is the best place to stay in order to hit the trail to Boot spring at dawn (or just before)?

    Birding in Goa, India

    Wondered how your tour of Rajasthan went? My wife and I will be honeymooning there in January. We intend to take the train from Delhi to Udaipur. Spend a few nights there then on to Ranthambore for an equal amount of time then a couple of days at Agra before returning to Delhi. Did you travel...

    Andalucia Bird Society

    I'll be arriving in Monte Gordo on Wednesday for a week and fancied tootling across the river by pushbike and ferry one of the days to have a look around Marismas Isla Cristina - any tips for best vantage points, migrant areas etc?
