Road Trip Reports

Planning a birding road trip to unfamiliar areas involves a lot of searching on the internet, and sometimes a little luck, to come up with a satisfactory itinerary.  The aim of this resource is to share experiences with one another and make the planning exercise a little easier.  A common frustration of photographers is finding the good locations to get those special shots; these reports should help to get you in the right area to find that sought-after bird.

Part of planning a road trip is locating suitable accommodation. The reports should contain recommendations regarding accommodation to be useful; links to websites would be useful. These recommendations are those of the contributor; they do not indicate that BirdLife Photography endorses the recommendations.

Please share your experiences with the rest of us by sending a report to the website administrator, Rob Parker: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Reports published within the last two years are member-only access; you must be logged in to see them.
