Brown Bush Warbler at Emei Feng – China Birding

Although the Zootherabirding tour to Southeast China last month featured a lot of very colourful and rare birds one of the species I was most keen to see was one of the brownest of “little brown jobs” – Brown Bush Warbler. One might ask why a skulking brown bush warbler would be high on my [...]

North Wales 4-day Trip, 23-26th May 2017 – British Birding

Migration; Siberian Thrush – Thailand Birding

After weeks of overcast skies and stormy weather the forecast today was for clear skies. Considering that the clouds had made migrants extremely thin on the ground I wondered if things would be different with the change of weather and headed to Sri Nakorn Kuen Khan park this morning. As has often been the case [...]
