Blakiston's Fish Owl
Blakiston's Fish Owl


Well Japan has been a blast! After just over 3 weeks checking out hotels, restaurants, birding sites and everything inbetween, we think we have just about worked out something very special for next year's Spring tour. One of the main areas we have been focussing on is the cuisine, and if like us, you don't eat fish & seafood then we have that covered! But, rest assured, the birding is fantastic!

You can always take a look at the Zoothera Blog for our slightly more informal report from our current visit. And we have prepared some additional information for anyone considering boiking this tour - just email our office on:  [email protected]

Kurdish Wheatear
Kurdish Wheatear

What a tour this was! An action-packed 9 days targetting some of the best birds the Western Palearctic has to offer. Our 2024 Turkey tour began in Adana, from where we headed south to various locations close to the coast. A network of rolling fields led to marshes, pools, drainage ditches and lagoons full of birds such as Collared Pratincole, Little Bitterns, Spur-winged Lapwings and many others. From here we drove north towards Demirkazik, stopping along the way to find Kruper's Nuthatch. The splendid mountainous scenery of Demirkazik was a wonderful setting to find Caspian Snowcock, Radde's Accentor, Wallcreeper, Asian Crimson-winged Finch etc. Spectacled Warbler was a surprise find by Vince too! We then had a long travelling day, visiting Sultan Sazligi marshes for Turkestan Short-toed Lark, Bearded Reeling and others. And we eventually ended the day by reaching a very nice hotel in Gaziantep at 9.30pm. But no rest for us birders as we were off early doors the next morning to make our first (and unsuccessful) search for Kurdish Wheatear. We did get Eastern Black-eared Wheatear, White-throated Robin and Upcher's Warbler. After getting Pale Rock Sparrow and some more very obliging robins and Upcher's warblers we drove just about an hour to Birecik. We were very keen to search the roadbeds of the Euphrates River for Iraq Babbler and it didn't take us too long to find a small group. In fact they were rather common in this area, as were the reintroduced Northern Bald Ibis! We drove inland to find See-See Partridge before ending the day with a spotlit Pallid Scops Owl visiting a nesting hole.

The next day we found Dead Sea Sparrow and other birds before twitching a reported Kurdish Wheatear several hours east. Along the way we found Mediterranean Short-toed Lark and Bimaculated Lark in a fantastic area of rolling hills. The site we eventually reached provided us without the Kurdish Wheatear we all craved, but numerous Finch's Wheatears and more See-See Partridges were nice. So it was back to Birecik for our last night there and a new plan to visit Nemrut Dagi the next day, changing our planned long drive to the Goksu Delta. This proved to be a good move as we found a couple pairs of Kurdish Wheatear, enjoyed close singing Cinereous Buntings, as well as more White-throated Robins and Upcher's Warblers. And the scenery was amazing too! A detour on our way to the new hotel in Gaziantep, took us to a Blue-cheeked Bee-eater colony. And this proved to be one of the major highlights of the trip. Simply outstanding watching over 100 Blue-cheeked Bee-eaters, with a few European Bee-eaters mixed i as well. Oh, and a couple Black-shouldered Kites were seen nearby as well. So a very worthwhile day.

Our last morning was spent at a wetland south of Gaziantep, which was surprisingly bird with Broad-billed Sandpiper amongst a good selection of shorebirds, Least Bittern, many herons and egrets and a Calandra Lark too. One final check of a reedy area gave us Dead Sea Sparrow, a surprise group of Iraq Babblers, Sardinian Warbler and Black-shouldered Kite again. Our last birding stop was en-route to the airport where we added White-throated Kingfisher to our list. And what a successful tour this was!

We have just finished our 3rd tour to Saudi Arabia, having cleaned up on all of the possible Arabian endemics. Species such as Philby's & Arabian Partridges, Arabian Eagle Owl, Arabian Scops Owl, Arabian Grosbeak, Arabian Green Bee-eater, Arabian Woodpecker, Buff-breasted & Arabian Wheatears, Asir Magpie, Rufous-capped Lark, Yemen Thrush, Yemen Warbler, Arabian Babbler, Arabian Sunbird, Arabian & Yemen Serin, Yemen Linnet, Arabian Waxbill, and the nomadic Arabian Golden Sparrow. Add to this Crab-Plover, Nubian Nightjar, Gambaga Flycatcher, Clamarous Reed Warbler and a superb selection of Afro-Tropicals such as Abdim's Stork, Lesser Flamingo, Olive Pigeon, Dusky Turtle Dove, Grey-headed Kingfisher, White-throated Bee-eater, African Grey Hornbill, Little Rock Thrush, 4 Wire-tailed Swallows (found March 24 and a 1st for Saudi Arabia), Black-crowned Tchagra etc. And migration was in full swing and we found Eurasian Wryneck, flocks of European & Blue-cheeked Bee-eaters, many Marsh & Barred Warblers, 3 Thrush Nightingales, several Masked Shrikes, 8 Red-backed Shrikes, a couple of Woodchat Shrikes, many Red-throated Pipits and more. One of the highlights was a ferry to the Farasan Islands & private boat trip around the numeorus islets to see Sooty Falcons, as well as 1000's of seabirds such as Bridled and White-cheeked Terns, Brown Boobies, Common Noddy and others. We will return to Saudi Arabia in April 2025 and will include this boat trip again, as well as adding a couple of days to ensure this is the most complete tour to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as possible! Plus, how about an pre-tour extension to Kuwait for Afghan Babbler, Hypocolius, Basra Reed Warbler, Socotra Cormorant, and some great additions to your Western Palearctic list.

Uluguru Bushshrike
Uluguru Bushshrike

And now for something a little different! The Eastern Arc Mountains of Tanzania are home to a whole host of endemic, rare and extremely localised species. Our journed takes us from the South Pare Mountains. to the East & West Usambaras, Uluguru Mountains and ends at the Ukaguru Mountains. During our 15 nights on the main tour we will camp for 6 (with our own ground crew) in some of the remotest places in Africa. We know camping is not everyone's cup of tea but it is utterly essential and unavoidable in this region, in order to reach the birding sites and try to find the endemics & specialities. Either side of the camping we have tried our utmost to have reasonable accommodation and be as comfortable as possible. But it really will be worth it  as we search for such special birds as Livingstone's Turaco, Böhms Bee-eater, Uluguru Bushshrike, Sharpe's Akalat, Winifred's & Rubeho Warbler, Long-billed Forest Warbler, Spot-throat, Olive-flanked Ground-Robin, Usambara Weaver and so much more.

blue-throated hillstar
Blue-throated Hillstar - only discovered in 2017

It has been a pretty busy summer for us with tours to Uganda, Colombia and most recently Southern Ecuador. Ecuador was a truly great tour and we'll post updates soon. Of course, it was all about seeing Jocotoco Antpitta, a species only discovered in 1997. And what a bird! But more of that later. As you can see we also had crippling views of the mega Blue-throated Hillstar, a species discovered 20 years after the antpitta! We've been updating the Zoothera Blog with a daily diary, as well as social media updates on Twitter and Facebook that you can check out. And we will be repeating this tour in December 2024 if you want to get in on the action.

Golden Parakeet


The tour report from this incredibly successful tour is now available to read. There's just too many highlights but nothing really beats the Golden Parakeets (right) we saw at Amazonia National Park. So take a look at the trip report here - Manaus Tour Report 2022


grey-tailed tattler
Grey-tailed Tattler - 1st for Oman

More HOT NEWS from our incredibly successful Oman tour that has just finished. We discovered the 1st Grey-tailed Tattler for this amazing country. It's a common bird across much of Asia, with the closest regular wintering birds being found in Thailand. But it mainly winters from Taiwan, Malay Peninsula and Philippines through Indonesia, New Guinea and Solomon Islands to Australia, with a few reaching New Zealand. So this bird has decided to take the opposite route...! The photo dondoesn't t really do it justice because of the distance at which it was feeding and odd light caused by the setting sun but there's no doubt what it is. Result!

This is the third tour we have run to Oman in 3 months and we found the 1st Banded Martin, 1st Grey-tailed Tattler, 7th Blyth's Reed Warbler and 4th Dalmatian Pelican. Not too shabby! And we just can't wait to return in November this year. Who knows what we will find?


Scotland Birding Group
Scotland Birding Group

What a week we had in Scotland! There was  White-winged Scoter, drake King Eider, flocks of Velvet Scoters and Long-tailed Ducks, Black Grouse lekking, Parrot, Common and Scottish Crossbills, flocks of Barnacle Geese, delightful Crested Tits, Red Squirrels and so much more. Add to this fantastic scenery and a great place to stay. Oh yes, the long winter evenings were enlivened by slideshows, quizzes and copious amounts of food and drink. Probably doing a quiz during cocktail evening was a mistake I grant you but it was so much fun!  We had a truly fabulous time and we all left a little heavier from the great meals provided by Lynzi & Carol. Thank you to everyone who took part and has supported myself and Zoothera all these years. Hopefully the world will return to normal in 2022 and we can all travel safely once more.

We will repeat the success of this trip again in the future. Maybe in Norfolk (winter) or Cornwall (October) or Yorkshire (in September) so more people can sample the famous Zoothera hospitality.... and great birding too! Stay tuned........

Our Oman group have just had amazing views of a calling Desert Owl.....

Grey Hypocolius
Banded Martin

On a scouting trip prior to our Oman tour at the end of November, we discovered a Banded Martin feeding amongst a congregation of over 5,000 Barn Swallows at Sawhnaut Farm, Salalah. This constitutes the 1st record for Oman. On top of that we also found the 7th Blyth's Reed Warbler for Oman as well. 

 We will be posting new dates for November 2022 soon. Please email our office to register your interest.

slender-billed scimitar-babbler
Slender-billed Scimitar-Babbler

Our Yunnan tour is rocking! Zixi Shan was a great place to start with Yunnan & Giant Nuthatches and Spectacled Fulvetta all showing well. The hides at Baihualing were phenomenal this year with such iconic birds as Mrs Hume's Pheasant, Hill Partridge, Mountain Bamboo-Partridge, Moustached Laughingthrush (right), Slender-billed Scimitar-Babbler, Grey-bellied Wren-Babbler, Himalayan Thrush (right), White's Thrush, numerous Long-tailed Thrushes,  Chestnut-headed Tesia, Scarlet Finch, and so much more! When you consider there can be 40 species being seen from each hide then the experience is quite breathtaking. The tour moved on to Laifengshan where Slender-billed Oriole and flocks of Tibetan Serins were see. Nabang was also quite good with Jerdon's Baza, Pale-headed Woodpecker seen well, Grey-headed,  Rufous-headed and Pale-billed Parrotbills, and even a pair of Ibisbill. The new hotspot of Hongbenghe exceeded all expectations and from the hides we saw Blue-naped and Rusty-naped Pittas, 2 Grey Peacock-Pheasants, Spot-breasted and Grey-sided Laughingthrushes, numerous Red-billed and Coral-billed Scimitar-Babblers, Silver-breasted Broadbill, and so much more. Yunnan continues to delight and enthrall in equal measure, providing unparallelled opportunities to observe some of Asia's rarest and shyest species at close quarters. See our next Yunnan tour itinerary here - Yunnan 2021.

We are busy uploading a series of videos from our recent Yunnan tour. You can see more on our Tour Video page or on our YouTube site.

undulated antpitta
Undulated Antpitta

Our Colombia - Andes & Santa Marta tour has just finished with over 550 species seen including 12 antpittas and 70 hummingbirds amongst a mouth-watering selection of other iconic South American birds. Our tour followed a special route across the majestic Andes beginning with a number of sites around Bogota seeing Bogota Rail, Sword-billed Hummingbird, Blue-throated and Golden-bellied Starfrontlet, Coppery-bellied Puffleg, Rufous-browed Conebill, Silvery-throated Spinetail, White-chinned Thistletail, Spillmann's Tapaculo, Plushcap, and more! Moving on to Otun-Quimbaya we were treated to Colombian Screech-Owl, Hooded & Moustached Antpittas, and Multicoloured Tanager for some. Montezuma and the fabled forests of Tatama National Park held numerous flocks with such iconic birds as Orange-breasted Fruiteater, Gold-ringed, Purplish-Mantled, Rufous-throated & Black-and-gold Tanagers, Chestnut-bellied Flowerpiercer, Munchique Wood Wren, Olive Finch, Crested Ant-Tanager etc. The hummer feeders at the lodge were mind-boggling with Rufous-gaped Hillstar, Green Thorntail and Empress Brilliant being stand-out birds. Rio Blanco was next up and lived up to all of our expectations with Bicoloured, Brown-banded, Chestnut-crowned, Slate-crowned, and a major surprise in an awesome Undulated Antpitta all being seen at incredibly close range. The endemic Buffy Helmetcrest at Nevado del Ruiz followed, and then we visited yet more antpitta feeding stations where Rufous and the super-scarce Crescent-faced Antpitta showed incredibly well. We also birded Jardin for Yellow-eared Parrot, explored Barranquilla and the Guijara Peninsula for a suite of very localised birds before reaching the fabled Santa Marta Mountains. It just doesn't get much better than cracking views of Rusty-breasted Antpitta and Santa Marta Antpitta here although there's so much more to see here and Santa Marta Woodstar & Santa Marta Blossomcrown were also seen well. What a tour and if you fancy joining us in 2020 then please let our office know - see Colombia: Andes & Santa Marta 2020 itinerary

lesser florican
Lesser Florican

Our Monsoon India tour was a resounding success and seeing Lesser Florican displaying has to be one of the most amazing sights in nature. The group watched this individual for an hour as it sprang into the air, stretched its wings, tossed its head back, fluffed up its feathers and then dropped to the ground like a stone. It did this numeous times as the group watched - an amazing sight. There was also Rock Bush Quail and Rain Quail in the same area too. The previous day a Leopard was seen, along with Sind Sparrow, several Indian Pittas, 5 day roosting Jungle Nightjars, nesting Black-breasted Weavers and Striated Babbler. Moving on to Kashmir there was Kashmir Flycatcher, Kashmir Nutcracker, Kashmir and White-cheeked Nuthatches, Black-and-yellow Grosbeak, Variegated Laughingthrush, Scaly-bellied and Himalayan Woodpeckers and many other great birds. Our Ladakh extension was amazing with up to 100 Tibetan Sandgrouse surrounding our car at one point. We even found a pair with 2 recently fledged chicks. Other great birds included Tibetan Snowcock, Black-necked Crane, Ground-Tit, Great Rosefinch, Brown Accentor and both Blanford's & Black-winged Snowfinches. You can see photos from this tour here: Monsoon India Gallery

Nick has returned from NE Brazil where an amazing time was had by a great, fun group led by Ciro Albano. With 409 species seen, including 89 endemics it was definitely a quality tour. The Zoothera Blog is up and running and we are already taking bookings for our NE Brazil 2021 tour now. Our tour is devoted to seeing many of the regions spectacular endemics and highly sought-after species such as the incredible Araripe Manakin, Lear’s Macaw, Great Xenops, Scarlet-throated Tanager, Slender Antbird, Hooded Visorbearer, Banded Cotinga and Pink-legged Graveteiro. The region is characterised by humid Atlantic rainforests on the coast, and endless rolling hills with dramatic canyons called the Caatinga. The Caatinga is home to a dry thorny forest with areas of more open grassland. It has its own special suite of endemic species that we will enjoy looking for on our many days of spectacular birding. With only 200 birds in the wild it is here that we will find the endangered Lear’s Macaw quietly feeding on palm trees, while Atlantic forest and woodlands at Boa Nova with thick vine tangles and terrestrial bromeliads hold some of South America’s most endangered species. We will also visit the Serra da Diamantina National Park at Lencois to explore some higher elevation habitats before heading back to the coast. A final visit to some mangroves and an area of cerrado will complete our tour of this complex yet fascinating region. Our local guide Ciro Albano has an unsurpassed knowledge of this region and an enviable reputation for success and finding the target species and we are sure this very special tour will meet the highest of expectations. We are also planning a Manaus & Amazonia tour to Brazil in July next year, so keep an eye out for the itinerary that is coming soon!
