We are preparing a couple of new trips for later in 2021 . This Finsch's Wheatear  (right) is a tricky bird to get on your life list, but it winters in Cyprus - see how you can see it  here.

The world is changing, arguably not for the better. But birding will go on and overseas hopefully! It is apparent that everyone considering an overseas birding adventure needs to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. But where to go.....? And where is safe.....? Both are difficult questions to answer but from 19th July 2021 the UK Government no longer recommends against travel to some of its self-imposed list of countries on the Amber List and there will be no need to quarantine upon arrival back in UK - just take a Day 2 Covid test. Simple! So let's go birding..... but where?
ECUADOR is about to be upgraded to possibly the Green List and offers some of the most exciting birding in South America. Our October tour to the Chocó region is aimed at seeing as many endemics and specialities as possible.  CYPRUS has a lot going for it and we have designed a series of mini-breaks to see Cyprus Warbler, Cyprus Pied Wheatear and Cyprus Scops Owl, plus it's the peak time to be in with a chance of seeing Demoiselle Crane - one of the rarest birds in the Western Palearctic. We've also added a couple other CYPRUS mini-breaks in December this year to see Finsch's Wheatear and there's our 10th Anniversary SCOTLAND House Party (just a yeat late!) in November this year. Looking ahead, things are looking promising for 2022, and our WEST PAPUA tours in Aug/Sept are quite popular, as is the  NEW MEXICO & MINNESOTA tour in January, whilst our EPIC MID-WEST USA CLEAN-UP tour in May/June is something we are also excited about. We have tried to be proactive and offer different tours that fit around the current Covid rules imposed by the UK government, and we will continue to do so. So please keep checking our tour programme as new tours will be added, and some will be rather last minute.

Well the USA has opened up to visiting tourists and we are extremely looking forward to our New Mexico tour in January 2022. The focus is on the superb reserve of Bosque del Apache and the awe-inspiring flocks of Sandhill Cranes, Snow & Ross's Geese.  But there's more... Northern Pygmy Owl, Bridled Titmouse, 3 sp of Rosyfinch visiting feeders, American Dipper, Mountain Bluebird, Crissal Thrasher & much more! Pre & post tour extensions to Minnesota & Texas are also available, with targets such as Boreal, Snowy & Great Grey Owl, Boreal Chickadee, and even Whooping Crane.......     So let's go birding!

NW ECUADOR - October 2021

Ecuador is currently on the dreaded Red List, but there are rumours of an upgrade to Amber in the near future. With this in mind, we have designed a very special tour to the north-west of this fabulous country. As well as a couple of familiar sites we will spend the majority of our time at Mashpi, Silanche, Playa de Oro, Kapari Lodge, Alto Tambo and Chical Road. There are a number of localised specialities with Choc√≥ in their name, plus crackers such as Long-wattled Umbrellabird, Barred Puffbird, Scarlet-breasted Dacnis, Blue-whiskered Tanager and so much more!   So let's go birding!

4th - 8th & 8th - 12th December 2021
Finsch's Wheatear is a tricky bird to get onto your life list and it's probably worth going out of your way to see it. One of the best places is during the winter period in Cyprus, so we have 2 set departures staying at a private villa for 4 nights in early December.  Cyprus is around 4.5 hours flying time from various UK airports and provides the perfect break where you can expect warm weather, great food, all drinks are free including beer & wine, and some excellent birding. There's probably the odd lingering Cyprus Warbler, Cyprus Scops Owl, wintering Moustached Warbler, Bonelli's Eagle and some interesting endemics subspecies to see and we're hopeful of finding a rarty! This is only for a group of 4 - 6, so let's go birding!  TOUR INFO
