PART FOUR - Desert Birding in Morocco with Boletas Birdwatching Centre

PART FOUR  – For some years now I have wanted to experience the desert birding in Morocco, and during 2017 I was fortunate enough to achieve my goal and I spent a week there, between 10th March and 20th March 2017, birding in the special desert areas. I traveled with Boletas Birdwatching Tours, operated by Josele Saiz. Our team comprised of 7 birders, most of which were also keen photographers, two leaders – Chris Townend and Danny Cazo Monesma and not forgetting our brilliant driver, Mohammed. It was a stunning trip, managing to see 30 new species and over 170 species […]

A Day with Waders at Frampton

In recent weeks the RSPB Reserve at Frampton Marsh in Lincolnshire has been a haven for waders, with several notable species being recorded. So we decide to head off there for the day on Saturday 6th August. It was a hot day and not altogether conducive for photography. Anyhow, there was a good selection of waders, as our visit coincided with a 7 metre high tide. The lagoons were covered in Dunlin and Black-tailed Godwit. Mixed in were several Little Stint, 2 Curlew Sandpiper, a White-rumped Sandpiper, Grey Plover, Redshank, Greenshank, Ruff, Snipe, Avocet, Curlew, Lapwing, Ringed Plover and Common […]

The weather was superb, the food superb and the hotel superb. What more can I say. One of the reasons we chose this resort was due to the easy access of the Algendar Gorge, which is a great place for birding. That kept me quiet for most of the mornings with an easy walk of around 3-4 miles there and back. The Algendar Gorge lies to the north of the […]

Bulgarian Butterflies 2015

During early July 2015, Barrie and myself managed a week pass-out and we made our third visit to Bulgaria in search of butterflies. Our trip was carefully planned in the hope of seeing some of the high mountain species and we arranged our trip around the Rila & Pirin high alpine habitat. We were often at altitudes in excess of 5,000 feet and the highest altitude was just under 10,000 feet on Mount Musala, the highest peak in Bulgaria. We had a few disappointments, missing several Ringlet species, Bosnian Blue and Shepherd’s Fritillary, due to the fact that they were not […]
