Dupont's, Nettle-trees and Festoons, Spanish Triple.
Written by Jos   

Spanish Festoon

 

Primarily a short trip to Catalonia to search for Spanish Festoons, Nettle-tree Butterflies and other early season butterflies, the trip evolved a little to include a detour to seek Dupont's Lark, one of the last of Europe's regular breeding birds that I had yet to see. With this in mind, traveling from 7-14 April 2017, the basic itinerary was a day on the Belchite Steppes for the Dupont's Lark, then a day in the Ebro Delta, then the remainder of the week in northern Catalonia, looking for the target butterflies.

Baltic Butterfly Challenge, 2017
Written by Jos   

Marsh Fritillary

 

 

 

Following on from a successful 2016 in Lithuania and Latvia, my goal for 2017 is simply to have another cracking year, hopefully exceeding the 100 species barrier again and tracking down a few species that have so far eluded me in Lithuania and/or the Baltic States.

Winter Birding In Iceland
Written by Jos   

Iceland Gull

 

A dramatic land, even more so in winter with snowy mountain backdrops and sometimes wild seas of the North Atlantic. When thinking about a mid-winter break however, I am not quite sure why Iceland popped into my head, it is not the obvious destination for the middle of February! But how magical it could be - flocks of Harlequins sharing waters with Orca, thousands of Iceland Gulls and potentially the Northern Lights too. I was hooked – off for a short winter trip to Iceland!
