From the Field - Georgia
We’ve just reached the half-way point on our tour of Georgia, and are currently reflecting on our time spent in the Greater Caucasus. All of the hoped for specialities performed admirably, and we were treated to extended encounters with Güldenstadt’s Redstart and Great Rosefinch (above) at their only Western Palearctic location. Other highlights included daily sightings of Lammegeier, including one that buzzed us twice within 30 meters, confiding Caucasian Chiffchaffs, lekking Caucasian Black Grouse, strutting Caucasian Snowcocks and a pair of unconcerned Wallcreepers (below).
NEW TOURS Rwanda: Shoebills and Gorillas
30 November - 13 December 2013
with Edwin Selempo and Steve Rooke
Since the much-publicised troubles of the 90’s, Rwanda has steadily rebuilt itself becoming a superb destination for wildlife tourism. In particular, it is an excellent place to see two iconic species of the region, the remarkable Shoebill and the truly impressive Mountain Gorilla. This new tour will aim to see both - and so much more besides as we explore the varied habitats of Akagera National Park and the incredibly bird-rich Nwungye Forest National Park, home to 25 Albertine Rift endemics.
This stunning Surucua Trogon is just one of many amazing birds we hope to see and photograph on our new tour to Brazil. Led by Stuart Elsom, the Brazil Photo Tour will be based at the Serra dos Tucanos lodge in the heart of the Atlantic rainforest for the whole tour. The dates are
17 - 24 September 2013 and the comfortable lodge is the ideal base for a photo tour - there is an excellent series of trails within the lodge grounds as well as a bird hide.
Philippines 24 May - 14 June 2014 with Susan Myers
A new tour to the exotic Philippines that are alive with endemics, such as this bizarre Palawan Frogmouth.
