"Finally", me and my girlfriend are back from our trip to the fabulous islands in the South. It wasn't just a birding trip but.. what can I say, how easy is it not to birdwatch at islands like that?! We saw almost everything we wanted. This includes Audouin's Gull, Marmora's Warbler, Corsican Finch, Lammergeier, Corsican Nuthatch and Barbary Partridge. Are you going there and want some information about good places, write me!
Just a few days before our flight back home the vulcano on Iceland started throwing out ash. But yesterday we came home, 24 days after going away and five days too late. We needed to take a bus from Rome.
In Sweden I changed to train and when I sat there in my train on the Malmoe train station I saw a 2cy cachinnans flying by. What can you do when you're in a train, run after it? But fortunately it landed on a lamppost and I managed to take some pics trough my binoculars! A nice ending to the trip.
