A Partner Friendly Birding trip to Bhutan
17 - to 31 May 2004

  • The day was spent birding in the Mo Chhu valley along the road from Punakha to Tashitang.  On the way we picked up Ram, a Forest Guard and friend of Tshering's.  Ram had a wonderful knowledge of the plants in the forest and we thoroughly enjoyed his company.  The road passed through some very beautiful scenery along the banks of the fast-flowing Mo Chhu...John McAllister reports.

A Birding trip to Bhutan April 7-26, 2005

  • Just as certain bird species tend to appear again and again on birders’ most-wished-for lists, so special parts of the world have become widely coveted dream destinations.  An example of a country that has emerged relatively recently to fire birders’ imaginations in this way is Bhutan...Paul Prevett reports

Bhutan trip 13th April - 1st May 2001

  • It was an early spring. This meant we missed some wintering birds, and it was noticeable with some species that we saw only females. The males had presumably gone up earlier to the breeding territories. On the other hand, we also benefited from finding some early summer breeding migrants...John Penhallurick reports
