Part One. Central Chile.

Diameded Sandpiper-Plover

 

 

Starting and finishing in Santiago, this superb circuit encompassed various sites in the high Andes, the woodlands of Altos de Lircay and the nearby Lake Colban, as well as the coastal strip, including the endemic-rich La Campana National Park and quite a number of sites along the Pacific coast. In this part of the trip, I also ventured out into the rich waters of the Humboldt Current on an excellent pelagic trip.

Chile, Land of Condors and King Penguins
Written by Jos   

Dolphin Gull

 

Chile is an epic country - stretching over 4300 km from vast deserts in the north to sub-Antarctic islands in the south, names leap off the map that long ago stirred my earliest childhood dreams: Tierra del Fuego, Strait of Magellan, Atacama Desert, Patagonia. Long had I harboured desires to visit this country, not least to enjoy the spectacle of Andean Condors to the backdrop of 6500 metre peaks, to see King Penguins and to seek out iconic species such Diademed Sandpiper-Plover and Magellanic Plover.

A Year Of Lithuanian Butterflies
Written by Jos   

Based on observations in 2016, the purpose of this list is to provide a detailed analysis of a single year's observations to serve as a broad outline of the species that may be encountered by an observer in Lithuania, with notes detailing flight dates, approximate locations and abundance.

 

Marbled Fritillary

 

Whilst not a comprehensive list of all species ever recorded in Lithuania, observations do cover 109 of the 126 species currently on the Lithuanian list. For completeness, an appendix of the remaining 17 species (mostly rare vagrants or historically-occurring species) will be added.
