Cavorting around the birding world!

Oh what to do when it is raining and damp outdoors? Guess what....

It’s a rainy day here, the second in a row, so I thought I’d look through the various photo albums by country for the year of 2013. I am always reminded just how lucky I am to be a professional wildlife guide, when I make the time to look through the various photographs that depict each year. Free travel, great destinations, wonderful birds among other wildlife and most importantly travelling with friends old and new. It is a privileged life and one I never ever take for granted. Strangely 2013 was a year when I worked more in Spain than travel around the globe, but still photos bring back fond memories of some great tours.

Among both cherished and memorable times travelling overseas were tours to Thailand, Morocco (3 times), Costa Rica, Norway and Uganda, besides a few others, so it is good to share a few of those trips here and with you. I hope you enjoy the journey!
