A Strawberry Poison Frog is clear evidence that birds are not the only spectacular creatures in Costa Rica in spring.

The new short tour to look for the recently rediscovered Forest Owlet northeast of Mumbai in India can be taken on its own or as a pre-tour extension to either West India: Gujarat tour in 2020, or South India and the Andaman Islands tour in 2021. It is also possible to join this from the India: Goa tour.




Scotland: Spring on Speyside
26 April - 2 May
with Stephen Menzie

The Scottish Highlands are one of the last truly wild places to be found in the United Kingdom. Ideally placed to explore the region, the imposing Grant Arms Hotel is home to The Birdwatching and Wildlife Club which provides its own Club room with a wildlife information centre, a bookshop and a natural history library. It also has a large lecture theatre which hosts evening talks from a range of guest speakers.

From this comfortable hotel we will venture out each day to a different part of the region seeking out the very special birds and mammals to be found there. Early spring is an ideal time to go birding there as most of the summer visitors will have arrived but there should also be some lingering winter birds as well. With just one base for the week, and with most locations within easy striking distance, this tour will offer a relaxed introduction to the natural wonders of Scotland.
