    Thanks, great report. Next time I will try to contact Carmen again - I seem to have fallen between two stools for my trip, which was pretty unproductive in comparison with yours, largely due to strong winds.

    Eco Insider Lanzarote

    Thanks. I had previously (many months ago) been in touch with Carmen and it was she who told me that they were no longer operating. They must have decided to give it another go. I am not heading back there again this year but maybe in 2025 so if you could update us on the success of the trip...

    Do you have a link or an email contact, please? I was recently in Lanzarote and had little success on my own, largely due to adverse weather conditions and sand drifts in El Jable.

    Do let us know how you get on Owene - the more information the better for all.

    Jandia fuerteventura.

    That is unlucky. I was there during the last week of January and had good views every time that I visited. Maybe it ha started nesting in earnest. Good luck!

    Jandia fuerteventura.

    That hotel is in Morro Jable. Jandia is the name of the whole of the peninsula from Costa Calma to the lighthouse at the western point. You can get a bus to Costa Calma if you fancy the long walk down to Sotovento. There is an abandoned zoo in Morro Jable, right on the front opposite the...

    Jandia fuerteventura.

    Derek Bradbury sadly died some time ago and I don't know of any other active guides out there at present. It is quite easy to do on your own but a car is best. As everyone has said the ground squirrels are everywhere - the areas around the Mattoral at Morro Jable are alive with them and they...

    Mallorca 2024

    Likewise this thread has been a valuable source of information and entertainment for the irregular visitor. We had a great trip to the island in 2023 but it looks unlikely that we will be out this year, sadly but I hold out hopes for 2025. I was intrigued and possibly inspired to read of the...

    Fuerteventura Tips for April

    Getting to the key birding spots (e.g Tindaya Plains, Los Molinos) in Fuerteventura without a car is very difficult. It is a large island, similar to Tenerife but with a much smaller population and limited public transport. Many of the places that you would wish to visit are on tracks rather...

    Merlin is the best of the apps available in my opinion but can still throw up oddments. I had Cliff Swallow, allegedly, in West Yorkshire earlier in the year. It helps to allow it to know your position and the various packs for downloading are quite useful. We had a trip to Colombia earlier in...

    Mallorca 2023

    We had a final sweep through S'Albufera this morning before the pressing demands of packing dragged us away. There was nothing exceptional to be found (by us) other than a solitary Black-tailed Godwit and single Temminck's and Little Stints. An eclipse Wigeon was pointed out by the sharp-eyed...

    Mallorca 2023

    As we near the end of our visit we took a look at the Fisherman's Walk at Cala San Vicenz yesterday, as recommended by those more experienced than we. We did enjoy a delightful walk in bright sunshine, stopping short of the quarry but it was relatively bird-free. A couple of Red Kites and...

    Mallorca 2023

    A quick call into Maristany gave us the first Swift (Common) of our trip as well as a Marbled Duck. A lovely walk down to the Necropolis at Son Real gave good views of a couple of Woodchat, Thekla Larks and a Stonechat as well as innumerable Mediterranean Flycatchers. A flock of 12...

    Mallorca 2023

    As an addendum, we had a short walk up Boquer this evening expecting that the regular tourists would be gone. Most were, apparently, as we were only passed by around 30, some complete with Bluetooth speakers so to share their enjoyment. Anyway, we were pleased to finally connect with two...

    Mallorca 2023

    It is a shame about Ternelles - we were due to join the walk last week but the forecast heavy rain, which duly arrived, led to us pulling out. How our aged legs would have coped with such a long walk is also questionable. Whilst I do understand how it should be a right of access path, visits to...
