    England Countryside - Europe Countryside

    Thank you for the viewpoints. Maybe the next question I have is how different is the countryside within England. I am familiar strictly with North Yorkshire to Borders, maybe further south it is very different. Birdlife here is quite abundant from my point. And compared to where I have been...

    England Countryside - Europe Countryside

    After some opinions on those with experience in both locations, what people think of the wildlife in the countryside of England compared to the countryside in France. In England, we have many hedgerows and farms are oven separated by copses of trees, many ponds around. I am no expert on...

    Laos - A country with life but no song.

    Without doubt it does have many things going for it. I recommend hiking through the mountainous jungle regions. Eating off banana leaves. 😋

    Laos - A country with life but no song.

    Having spent two weeks in Laos, travelling many places, except the South East and North East part of the country, I can say you will likely see more birds (density and species) in one day in Dakar Senegal than in 2 weeks in Laos. Apart from Tree Sparrows, the only common town bird, not a lot...

    Kenya Trip (8th November - 16th November) Any interested?

    Yeah, the more I think about on this itinerary Masai Mara might be skipped. Otherwise there is like 5 days with 4/5 hours on the road, not including game drive time.

    Curlew Sandpiper {?} - Scaling Dam Today

    Single wader with downcurved slender bill. This one looks like it fits the bill of a Curlew Sandpiper, but I would like some good confirmation. 👍 Link to Dropbox for a decent video of bird: SEP 9

    Bishop Middleham - 2 Waders (01/SEP)

    Hi everyone. Amidst the Lapwing and Starlings, after reviewing a video I see two different waders in there at the top (left -top) of the image. What do you think? Video here full of birds on the evening (00:14 - 00:20) will be better help: 1350494.mp4 I think the quality is only good if you...

    Suriname Feb 2022

    Zintete lodge was where I stayed at the end of day 1! Roads were in a state, but got through, even if we had to dismount the 4*4 some times! Bridge, 2 km away, was impassable for a vehicle, one plank made it possible to cross on foot, but no problems at the camp. Some nice birds in the area...
