Early Season Highs. March 2019.

Large Tortoiseshell



Butterfly season opens - a Small Tortoiseshell on 12 March, my earliest ever butterfly flying in Lithuania. Beyond that, still a good couple of weeks earlier than usual, warm sun from the 23rd onwards added more early season surprises, several splendid Yellow-legged Tortoiseshells, an impressive eight Large Tortoiseshells and 23 Camberwell Beauties!

Golan and North Israel, February 2019

With a duration of just two-and-a-days, this proved to be an extraordinarily productive trip. The basic idea was to visit the Hula Valley for the amazing concentrations of wintering Cranes and other waterbirds, then travel up into the occupied Golan Heights, before dropping down to the Beit She'an area to look for birds around the superb fishpond systems.


Vinous-breasted Starling


This short trip truly exceeded expectations - not only seeing the impressive 50,000 Cranes at Hula, but also a whole bunch of other highlights, including Black Francolin, Dead Sea Sparrows, Great Spotted Cuckoo and no less than 19 Pallas's Gulls. Also saw Eastern Imperial, Steppe, Bonelli's and Great Spotted Eagles, plus a number of other targets, such as Vinous-breasted Starlings in the Tel Aviv area and False Apollo butterfly in the Golan Heights.

Long-billed Corella



I incorporated the Sydney area into my itinerary primarily for a pelagic trip, but this got cancelled the evening before! Regardless, a fantastic trip followed, very much planned on a day-to-day basis, but including localities for Koala and Wombat, the Royal National Park for Superb Lyrebird, the Jervis Bay area for Ground Parrot and the Capertee Valley for a good range of inland species.
