    Marsh & Willow Tits in Japan

    Many thanks - really good reference (though it's a shame that the Abstract wasn't better translated, or written so it read well on its own). Brilliant help. Many thanks.

    Marsh & Willow Tits in Japan

    I'm watching a few Japanese feeder cams: a couple in Hokkaido and one in Honshu. I'm seeing Marsh/Willow Tits regularly, especially on the Hokkaido webcams. How are the eastern races of these two species told apart on plumage? Is there any accessible online literature on them?

    Not long back from Rwanda - I can't recommend it highly enough. Nyungwe Forest is exceptional birding - accessible (if you are fine with steep paths), great views, fantastic experience. Claudien from http://birdingrwanda.com/ recommended Claver Ntoyinkima as guide, and he was exceptional...

    Thanks Peter & Dieter - many thanks! I'm glad that you've found looking at the link worthwhile. I hadn't realised that the best read reports on Bird Forum seemed to be text pasted into the thread - I wanted to put something together that I could email to the friends who wanted to hear more...

    Ghana, July/August 2017

    Having been to Ghana to do a rainforest bird study as a student in 1989, I've always wanted to go back. I finally managed it this summer - a friend and I booked a private tour with Ashanti African Tours. It was amazing - the guide we had (James Ntakor) was exceptional, and with a driver and that...
