Trip Reports & Sightings

Posted by Alan Miller

Morocco - Agadir and Surrounds - November 2008, author Alan Miller (added November 22, 2008)
(A wonderful fortnight enjoying the sights and sounds of Morocco with the highlight being 80 Bald Ibis feeding not 10 yards from the car.)

Gran Canaria, Canary Islands - Feb - March 2009, author Alan Miller (added March 4, 2009)
(With 3 weeks on Gran Canaria we recorded an interesting selection of birds including an american vagrant, Laughing Gull)

La Palma - birds and butterflies - Feb - Mar 2008, author Alan Miller (added March 14, 2008)
(We knew La Palma to be lusher than many of the Canary Islands with a good coverage of Laurel forests, and with speciality birds and butterflies. With relatively little available information the challenge of a new place to explore excited us.)

Lanzarote - February 2012, author Alan Miller (added February 25, 2012)
(Houbara Bustard seen well at four sites, and Cream-coloured Courser, Barbary Partridge, Berthelot's Pipit, African Blue Tit, Trumpeter Finch and Canary together with several subspecies confined to Macronesia and the Canary Islands were amongst the birding)

USA - Southern Florida - February 2010, author Alan Miller (added February 24, 2010)
(In two-and-a-half weeks Anne and I enjoyed wonderful hospitality, superb wildlife viewing and plenty of American fayre. With 132 species of birds including 21 lifers it was an experience we can thoroughly recommend.)
