Having failed to find any birding destinations for June, I shuffled plans around and travelled with my wife to Mexico for 10 days, with car rented and staying in Chichen Itza. Not a birding trip, but plenty of opportunity to get some new species including two guided days out in amongst.

Going to write a brief report in the relevant forum so will just stick to listing the dates, species and locations here.
