For something different, how about our exciting adventure to the ornithological mecca that is Yunnan? This far south-western corner of China has headline species such as White-speckled Laughingthrush, Brown-winged Parrotbill, Yunnan Nuthatch, Yunnan Fulvetta, Ward's Trogon, Fire-tailed Myzornis, Himalayan Cutia, Grey-bellied Wren-Babbler, Moustached Laughingthrush, Rufous-tailed Babbler and Black-bibbed Tit. Amazing Gaoligongshan has numerous feeding stations set up where we can see and photograph a whole suite of typically skulking species that are hard to see out in the field, such as Gould's Shortwing, all 3 tesias, Red-tailed and Blue-winged Laughingthrushes, Rusty-fronted Barwing and so much more.  

This tour is a specialised itinerary designed to concentrate our efforts in finding as many of the endemic and specialty bird species of Western Mexico as possible. Western Mexico holds a large number of endemic bird species, some of them among Mexico’s most spectacular birds. We will visit areas in Sinaloa, along the Durango Highway and San Blas, the majority of our time will be spent in the bird rich areas of Colima and Jalisco. Key target species include Red Warbler (left), Cinereous Owl, Lesser Roadrunner, Aztec Thrush, Orange-breasted Bunting, Tufted Jay and so much more!

The rainforest-cloaked island of Borneo is one of the richest places on our planet for wildlife. We will visit the Rafflesia Reserve in the Crocker Mountain Range, Mount Kinabalu, Poring Hot Springs, the lush riverine forest and mangroves on the Kinabatangan River, two different lowland rainforest areas at Sepilok and the famous Borneo Rainforest Lodge at Danum Valley. This is an exciting, bird-filled ride in search of some stunningly beautiful endemics, from Bornean Bristlehead and Blue-headed Pitta to Great Argus and Storm's Stork and everything else in between! And let's not forget Proboscis Monkey and Orang-utan as well.

The small strikingly attractive island of Taiwan is home to at least 30 endemics, depending on taxonomy. The often mist-laden and dramatic mountainous interior with lofty peaks cloaked in mature forest will be our base as we search for some very special birds. So inevitably most of our time will be spent in the mountains searching for Mikado and Swinhoe's Pheasants, Collared Bush-Robin, Rufous-crowned Laughingthrush, White-eared Sibia and others. Yet a whole new range of species awaits us along the coastal plain where some fine wetlands and estuaries are home to an impressive array of waders, as well as an important population of the endangered Black-faced Spoonbill. And we also visit to Lanyu Island for its endemic scops-owl and other extremely localised species.
