Kazakhstan, Lands of the Pallas's Sandgrouse.
Written by Jos   

Explorations into Central Asia, this eleven-day trip to southern Kazakhstan was my first to the region and focussed on the high Tian Shan mountains and the vast expanses of semi-desert that stretch to the north. With species including Pallas's Sandgrouse, Ibisbill, White-tailed Rubythroat and Altai Accentor, this 2014 trip was truly memorable.

Cyprus, June 2014
Written by Jos   

Scops Owl

 

 

A mini-break with the primary goal of tracking down the island's two endemic birds, namely Cyprus Warbler and Cyprus Pied Wheatear. However, with a range of other potential species including Eleonora's Falcon, Great Spotted Cuckoo, Cretzschmar's Bunting and Black Francolin, this four-day trip promised to be a rather nice outing in the sun.

Written by Jos   

 Lapwing chick

 

Lesser Spotted Eagles, Ospreys, Red-backed Shrikes, Wrynecks, Corncrakes, the days of spring in Lithuania. Traditionally amongst the most pleasant months in the Baltic States, May and June were marked by migrants, breeders and occasional surprises ...not least an inland Arctic Skua over Labanoras and a White Pelican at Arnionys. Also abundant butterflies, including Poplar Admirals and Purple Emperors.
