Written by Jos   






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.

 Burrowing Owl


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.

Going Double. January-February 2014

Three-toed Woodpecker


After a day in Miami, 2014 truly kicked off in the traditional style of deep-winter Lithuania, temperatures falling to minus 23 C. Top birding in the period centred around my feeding stations, top glory going to the double-billing of TWO Three-toed Woodpeckers, and to the birds attracted to the River Nemunas in Kaunas, virtually the only water to remain ice-free in the country. Amongst the haul at this location, an immature Glaucous Gull, a couple of Barnacle Geese and flocks of up to 8000 Goldeneyes and over 30 Smew.
