CROATIA MAY 20th-27th 2017
Hi this month has been incredibly busy, although in all honesty it started in the last week of May with Croatia birding, although we had a proper guide, and a tourist guide and a driver the travelling was the most tedious part. however I was fortunate enough to get several lifers. let me explain that I consider myself to be a bit of an all round nature seeker, so to book a week of nothing but birding was extremely unusual. The group were very friendly and a few were regular birders abroad. We stayed in a very nice hotel so we were not exactly roughing it. We visited 4 different venues over the 5 days. The mountains for higher altitude birds. The Neretva river the Cetena river and the Pantan reserve along with the KRKA national park. On the photography side I took my Olympus gear EM1mk2 300pro 40-150pro and 12-100pro I am very much still getting to grips with this outfit and was more than a little anxious at leaving behind my canon gear, Whilst you are viewing remember all images are HAND HELD my general thoughts are that with a bit more input from the user (me) the images will get better. The holiday was very rushed IE when we arived at the Bee Eater colony we spent only 25 mins if this was at home in the UK I would have spent at least half a day or more.
