Just back from the deep southern waters of the egyptian Red Sea, with stunning results. All target birds were seen, incl. two Tropicbirds, 6 Crab Plover, 1 Goliath Heron, 100+ Sooty Falcons again, and the rest of the usual stuff, incl. huge number of migratory birds. Several of them landed on our liveaboard from Shrikes to Little Bitterns. Great sealife made our journey more interesting, incl. a visit to the so-called Dolphin House' Reef where we had a chance to swim together with 80+ Spinner Dolphins.
(28th September)


We finished yesterday our annual "Late summer birding tour" with astonishing results, 162 species on a very leisurely way. We made a modified itinerary with two 4x4s, which allowed us to explore some of the really off-the-beaten tracks of Balaton Upland NP, Somogy county and the Danube-Drava NP before we went to the regular hungarian birding sites. We observed all the usual hungarian goodies, like Saker, Great Bustards, White-backed Woodpecker and we got some good surprised like Nightjar, Thrush Nightingales and a flock of Dotterel at a site I discovered about 10 years ago in Kiskunsag NP. We were very lucky with owls... Eagle Owl, Little Owl, Long and Short-eared Owls, Barn Owl, Scops Owl were all observed. We also had some great insects, most notably Banded Darters, and we also enjoyed some fantastic sight of rutting and fighting Red Deers, which is I believe one of the highlight of hungarian naturescape. Next to Egypt for some pelagic...

A private tailor-made butterfly tour to Transylvania just finished with record-breaking results. At the beginning we made a 24-hour big day record, with 84 species recorded in a row. Than weather turned to be miserable and destroyed some of our days, but we still finished with a astonishing 107 species. En route to home I picked up further 4. It was an incredible year for Danube Clouded Yellow, we pretty much walked up to the knee in this gorgeous butterfly, which gave us perfect shoots of a mating pair and an extraordinary opp. for photographing forma "alba". We also got several beautiful Camberwell Beauties, the endemic and incredible Transylvanian Torquise Blue (Plebicula magna; some more details about this incredible taxa is here), the also endemic ssp. runcensis of Black Ringlet, Titania's Fritillary, and many more. We also seen several Lesser Spotted Eagles, Golden Eagles, Nutcracker and Hazelhen. Next to the Hungarian Plain and than to a pelagic to Southern Egypt for tropicbirds, sharks, and other goodies.

Just back from the annual Slovenia butterfly trip. It wasn't a very successful tour as a result of very serious rains, which destroyed about half of our field-days, but still we got some amazing result, incl. 12 species of Ringlets, done in 1,5 field days. Notabilities included Lorkovich' Brassy Ringlet, Stirian Ringlet and the endemic ssp. trentae of Stygian Ringlet. Next to Transylvania for Festoon's Wood White and Danube Clouded Yellow...

Just finished our annual fundraising butterfly tour to Montenegro with the European Interest Group of Butterfly Conservation, which ended up with 104 butterfly species in 5 field days only.

Asblepharus kitaibelii). From 2012 this tour will be available for every butterfly enthusiasts, for more details please click here! Next to Slovenia...

Back from two another consecutive tours, one to Montenegro-Albania, another in Hungary. Both were combined butterflies & birds tours with many memorable species. In Montenegro we have seen incredible gradation of Black-veined White, something I didn't experienced since the midd. 90's. In Albania the high number of Dalmatian Pelicans, Iolas Blue and a prolonged blank-point view of a male Quail five meters in front of us were absolutely unforgottable.

Just back from two consecutive tours, one to Syria and another to Slovenia-Croatia. Syria yielded some very memorable stuff, incl. the last three remaining Bald Ibis at nest, blank-point view of Sahara Eagle Owl and fantastic array of larks and wheatears. Slovenia-Croatia gave the usual good number of Rock Partridges, Sombre Tits, Rock Nuthatch, Griffon Vultures, Lanners and Eleonora's Falcons, incredible number of European Scops Owls, and unexpected Greater Spotted Cuckoo. We encountered some beautiful Southern Festoons and early Dalmatian Ringlets, not to mention the thousands of orchids. Very memorable tours... Next to Albania and Montenegro again.
