Return to Iran, Spring in the Persian Jewel
Written by Jos   

Following on from two successful trips in summer and winter, this trip sees me returning to the fantastic Iran for three weeks between April 4 and 26.

With a twist on previous trips, the aims of this trip are to seek out some of the more elusive residents (particularly Caspian Tit, Black-headed Penduline Tit and Basra Reed Warbler), to travel across the remote Khur Touran deserts and to spend an extended period on the Persian Gulf, hopefully enjoying the fruits of spring migration at its peak.

With sporadic internet available, updates may be few and far between, but watch this space ...I'll be posting as a I go...

Weasels and Wolves, Capercaillie and Pygmy Owl, tasters of the first days of March! In a very early spring, plenty of birds on the move, butterflies too, including Large Tortoiseshell.

Covering all the classic sites in southern Florida, this tour covered a total of about 4030 km all in the comfort of a rental car and staying in a range of accommodations from camping in the Everglades and Lake Kissimmee to a rather luxurious hotel on Fort Meyers Beach. Weather throughout was basically excellent, hovering mostly around 28-30 C (80-85 F) and sunny most of the time. One day only was marred by light rain, with a second seeing mist and rain at dawn, later to clear to another bright sunny day.
