Shetland Exposure takes on a whole new meaning!
Phil and I are delighted to be the proud owners of a superb house in Shetland! We can't wait to make it our permanent abode sometime soon . . . . . . .;-)

Lesvos - May 2011
Travelling Naturalist Wildlife Holidays
Phil and I have just returned from an excellent week in Lesvos leading a group of 6 for the Travelling Naturalist. We think this year's trip was the best to date with the West coast dripping in migrants, the salt-pans teeming with marsh terns and waders, the hills scattered with numerous Orchids just in flower & the quality and time spent out birding and sharing these delights with 6 happy clients was a real treat. Thanks to Jed, Margaret, John, Pam, Angie & Trevor for making the trip such a fun and successful one. Here are some of the images taken on this year's Lesvos tour. . . . .

Red-rumped Swallow & a Ruff, Little Ringed Plover, Squacco Heron, Yellow Bee Orchid, Wild Orange Tulip, Hobby, Great Reed Warbler & a Crown Anemone.
