FEATURED TOURS

We are delighted to welcome James P. Smith to our team. One of his favourite locations is the Upper Texas Coast and this tour in April visits during the Spring migration when an astounding number of birds are present. Walking around the woods at High Island when a fallout occurs is one of the avian wonders of the world. There are simply too many birds to look at, with such species as Hooded, Kentucky, Blackburnian, Prairie, Canada and Cape May Warblers all possible. But the variety of habitats from coastal flats, lagoons, marshes, Longleaf Pine woodlands and cypress swamps hold such diverse wonders as King Rail, Piping Plover, Swallow-tailed Kite, Red-cockaded and Red-headed Woodpeckers, Swainson's Warbler, Le Conte's Sparrow and more. Oh and there's a boat ride to look for the endangered Whooping Crane as well.

Spain & Morocco: The point at which Africa and Europe meet is the epicenter for one of the world’s most spectacular bird migrations. Every autumn, millions of birds make the 14 km journey across the Straits of Gibraltar, making use of uplifts and thermals rising off the Rock of Gibraltar and the stunning Moroccan peak of Jebel Musa. An estimated 250,000 raptors pass over this rugged terrain during autumn, as well as untold thousands of journeying passerines and seabirds. As well as being at the heart of the thrilling migration spectacle, we will look for Marsh Owls, Bald Ibis and Barbary Macaques as well as the seabirds and cetaceans of the Straits on a boat excursion and Moroccan specialities in both mountain and wetland sites. And there will be plenty of time in the itinerary to relax in the shade, sharing tapas or sipping mint tea.

This very special shorter tour to Central Thailand is a little different in that it provides a superb opportunity to see a number of very special birds that are usually far easier to see during the wet-season than earlier in the year. In particular we will focus our attentions on finding Blue-winged, Hooded and Blue Pittas At this time of year breeding will be in full swing and this can be a photographers dream as up to six species of broadbill, Banded and Oriental Dwarf Kingfishers, and the scarce Asiatic Golden Weaver amongst others often provide superlative close views. There will be plenty of other species as well, and potential other targets include Black-thighed Falconet, Large Scimitar-babbler, Red-legged Crake, and we can always hope for a Eared Pitta as well!

Uganda is one of Africa’s most outstanding birding destinations. With its wide-variety of habitats including breathtaking forests, world-famous waterfalls, awesome savanna and high-altitude grasslands. The “jewel in the crown” must certainly be Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, which is one of the best places in the World to see Gorillas, and this will be high on our list of targets on this spectacular trip. Of course there will be many other things to look for including African Green Broadbill and a bunch of Albertine Rift Endemics. In Kibale we will look for Chimpanzees and the rare Green-breasted Pitta as well as a host of other superb species. And don’t forget the amazing Shoebill as well.
