    Travel abroad, how is migration situation ?

    We have been to Mexico 3 times, Brazil, Columbia, Greece and Costa Rica in the past 18 months and have so far found the paperwork etc to be nowhere near as onerous as some people like to make out. We have also felt safer in all of these countries because of the safety measures imposed and...

    Ann and Roland go Lockdown Birding in Brazil Christmas 2020

    This was a very last-minute trip booked as soon as we were able to visit Brazil and what a good job we slotted it in before Brazil slammed the door on us! Subsequent trips we booked have had to be postponed until goodness knows when. :(

    Ann and Roland go Lockdown Birding in Yucatan Mexico May 2021 -

    Back to Mexico again as soon as Boris let us out! We hadn't been able to go to Baja as planned in February but were eager to return and explore the Yucatan area. Wonderful to see our friend Eric again and to meet Rafael Calderon, our guide in Mexico City. Another fantastic tour and sadly, we...

    Ann and Roland go Lockdown Birding Birding in West Mexico September 2020

    Ann and Roland go Lockdown Birding in Oaxaca Mexico August 2020

    We should have been celebrating my 70th birthday in Mexico with Eric but Covid reared its ugly head. As soon as we were able to travel again, we did exactly that and had an absolutely fantastic time with the wonderful Eric Antonio Martinez. I laughingly set him the task of finding us 70 lifers...

    Ann and Roland go Birding in Southern Peru September 2019

    Thank you for your comments. We lost a lot of time up in the Eulalia Gorge because of the puncture. The driver didn't know how to use a jack .... We will return to Peru - there are so many birds there we haven't seen yet - but we will be using a different guide! ..

    Ann and Roland go Birding in Southern India (Kerala) Christmas 2018

    We prefer private tours, Jeff. We try to find a local guide to work with but it doesn't always work out! Pity about the Laughingthrush :( We got the Frogmouths more than once. Very photogenic! We have been to Sri Lanka with Jith. Loved it. We have also done Northern India (Corbett) and Nepal so...

    Ann and Roland go Birding in Southern India (Kerala) Christmas 2018

    Hi, Jeff! We looked at an itinerary with a different company which included Periyar. Our guide, Vinod, didn't seem to think much of the place! I would be amazed if we didn't have slightly different bird lists! ;) We would like to go back to India sometime but are stuck for inspiration at the...

    Cuba - guide and resort

    It's easy to bird Cuba on your own. Just get the Birdwatchers' Guide to Cuba, Jamaica et al if you haven't already got it and plan your own route. Hiring a car is easy. Once you get out of Havana the roads are deserted. There are homestays everywhere. we used them on both trips except for Cayo...
