Why not Burgas, Bulgaria or Istanbul for its raptor migration?
Not necessarily months. Last week you could have seen Baird's Sandpiper, Semipalmated Sandpiper, two Pectoral Sandpipers, Buff-breasted Sandpiper, American Golden Plover, Buff-bellied Pipit and Sabine's Gull all in the same village, 10 mins from the international airport. And then a Yellow Warbler and White-winged Scoter just down the road. The potential for finding your own birds is pretty huge after a nice SW front hits. But if the winds aren't right then you might see absolutely nothing in terms of rarities. But Harlequin Duck, Barrow's Goldeneye and Gyr Falcon are available 365 days of the year if you want those for your WP list.Hm Iceland, how is it with birds there? From thr occasional news I get the feeling that they get fantastic rarities, but very few, so one would have to live there for months to see anything, am I wrong?
We only have time now, not in October, sadly.
I don't know about Iceland but in Denmark and I assume other Scandinavian countries you can rent a cabin ("summer-house") with good WIFI and it would be cheaper than a hotel for stays of several days to week long periods. Some campgrounds have very small cabins for rent as well.since we need to stay in a hotel,
Sounds great, but no good for adding to Jan’s WP List which is the priority for him!Hi Jan,
If you want cheap and a good wifi connection for your wife, did you consider outside the Old Continent? Lots of places in Asia have good wifi and good hotels. Check their entrance requirements. From my experience with remote work there, however, a big problem may be looking out of the window and getting distracted by blue sky, palm trees, metallic starlings and bulbuls.
