Doñana + Extremadura 05 - 11 April 2015 : private tour highlights John Muddeman

Summary report of a 7-day excursion focussing on the birds of these two fabulous birdwatching areas. Nearly 200 birds species were recorded, including many returning migrants, 20 species of diurnal raptors and a remarkable range of the scarcer and more sought-after species of S and W Spain.

A new less intensive and still highly successful version of the previous tour. An average of just one bear watch a day, mostly at dawn, resulted in a fine observation of a big black male on our very first attempt during a very difficult year! A wealth of other sightings included Southern Chamois, 3 Wallcreepers, Western Spectre and 61 species of butterflies, such as the endemic Spanish Argus and Chapman's Ringlet.

Brown Bears, birds & butterflies in the Alto Sil & Somiedo N.P. : Trip Report August 2014 John Muddeman
09/09/2014
A strongly reworked, much less intensive and highly successful version of the previous tour. At a gentler pace we made just one bear watch a day, all but one of these at dawn, resulting in a remarkable final tally of 11 different Brown Bears! A wealth of other sightings included Wild Cat, Southern Chamois, Alpine Accentor and 57 species of butterflies, such as the endemic Chapman's Ringlet.

Canary Islands: Trip Report July 2014

Canary Islands: Trip Report July 2014 John Muddeman
05/09/2014
On many a birder's wish list, the Canary Islands are a superb destination. Its combination of endemic bird and other species, plus excellent opportunities of seeing pelagic species from onboard large and stable vessels, this logistically complex trip combining visits to four islands ran even better than hoped!
