Northern Tunisia 16 – 23 February 2005

  • Ninety two species were recorded during the holiday - which was not intended to be a total birding experience.  I had just returned from duty in Iraq and it was a chance to unwind with my family and take in some of the Tunisian historical sights and the sun - which there wasn't much of in an unseasonably poor winter...Mark Easterbrook reports

Tunisia 19th-26th December 2004

  • Birding was easy, although I did miss a couple of species which I thought were almost definite (marbled duck and red-rumped wheatear). Views were generally good to excellent but I often spent a little less time with each species than I would have liked as there was often somewhere else to move on to....Ken Tucker reports

Birding Trip to Tunisia 3rd to 31st March 2004

  • Why don't more birders go?  It's a major migration route for many species, with huge numbers and quality views.  The people are friendly, the landscape and history fascinating, travel is easy and accommodation is cheap and readily available.  Above all it's safe, and largely hassle free....Kathleen and Ian Johnson report
