    Had a great trip with Ebrima W Barry.

    We have recently returned from a trip to The Gambia. We booked a 14 night trip with Thomas Cook and stayed at the Bakoto Hotel. This place is good for birding but is small and you have to pay extra for a fan. On the recommendation of another birdwatcher we pre booked Ebrima W Barry. The W is...

    I will be on a cruise ship in September and we will be stopping in Gaspe. Does anyone know of a local guide who may be able to do a day trip? Have looked at birding pals but it does not seem to cover Gapse though since I do not know the area I may be mistaken. Many thanks Jeanie

    Southampton docks

    It would be worth looking out for a Northern Parula in the area of the docks. There was one on our cruise ship which had survived the journey across from the Bahamas where a huge flock of migrating birds got tangled up in the ship during a storm. This was on the 18th Oct.

    We were taken on a great days birding trip by Carolyn Wardle of http://www.bahamasoutdoors.com/ If you are on the island I highly recommend Carolyn as a guide. And the good news is that her price includes a delicious lunch and travelling expenses. Beware that in the USA some of the trips were...

    Birding in Charleston

    Had a marvellous days birding in Charleston. Luckily, the day before they were hit by major floods. We were taken around by Dennis Forsythe who was very knowledgeable and an excellent guide.

    Which falcon is this - Goa.

    Have added this to my Goa thread but it has not been responded to. Any thoughts on which falcon this is. Some have said Lagger but another thought it was an Amur. Was seen at Fort Aguada. Many thanks.
