Return to Iran, the Enchantment Continues
Written by Jos   

Following on from my successful trips to Iran in summer and winter, this trip saw me returning for three weeks between April 4 and 26 to savour the best of spring.

 

Pleske's Ground Jay

 

 

Building on previous trips, the aims of this time were to seek out some of the more elusive specialities (particularly Caspian Tit, but also Black-headed Penduline Tit and Basra Reed Warbler), to travel across the remote Dasht-e-Kavir desert and to generally have a whole bunch more adventures in this excellent country.

Weasel

 

 

 

 

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.

Florida, winter 2013-14
Written by Jos   

 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.
