    Day 2: We spent a wet morning around the Julatten area including Mount Lewis picking up Golden Bowerbird, Chowchilla, Fernwren, Yellow-breasted Boatbill, White-eared Monarch, Papuan Frogmouth and a pair of Lesser Sooty Owls. Trip total 121.

    Day 1: Cairns to Kingfisher Park Birdwatches Lodge. Today Steve and the group saw no less than 78 species including Cassowary, Victoria Riflebird, and many other usual suspects. The best sighting though was this gorgeous Lumholtz's Tree-Kangaroo.

    Steve Potter is guiding a 10-day private tour for 5 South African return-clients in Far North Queensland. One of the bird-richest areas of Australia, the tour will take in the Cairns area, Atherton Tablelands, Musgrave, Lakefield and Iron Range National Park to finish in Weipa on Cape York.

    Day 3: Taman Negara NP in Malaysia continues to deliver with Scarlet-rumped Trogon, a skulking Rail-babbler and beautiful Red-bearded Bee-eater. The group spent the day birding the jungle trails and taking boat trips on the river, resulting in a total species list of over 110 in 3 days.

    Day 2: Our Malaysia tour was spent in the rainforests of Taman Negara where we had fantastic views of gorgeous Crested Firebacks. Other good species seen were Great Argus, Malayan Peacock-pheasant, Green Broadbill, 5 species of Woodpecker and more Hornbills.

    Day 1: an early start at Bukit Tinggi resulted in a wealth of birds with great views of rare Mountain Peacock-pheasant. We then drove to Taman Negara, picking up 3 different species of Hornbill along the way.

    Our Peninsular Malaysia tour explores one of the richest areas for birds in Southeast Asia. During 8 amazing days we'll visit, among other locations, Kuala Selangor, Fraser’s Hill and famous Taman Negara National Park. There’s a fantastic variety of birds (we have exceeded 210 species on the last 3 tours), many mammals (including Taipir), flowers and beautiful butterflies to be observed.

  • brolga Great Southern tour 2016 - The Great Southern Tour concentrates on the many specialties of the southern coastal region of Australia and the South Australian outback. Coastal birding north of Adelaide and along the Great Ocean Road; the outback deserts and dry watercourses, with the rugged escarpments of the Flinders Ranges; Birdlife Australia’s splendid Gluepot reserve, the Murray River, we wander the plains around Deliniquin and marvel at the masses of waterbirds in Werribee to finish in the tall, hill forests near Melbourne.
  • 069-ed4 Six Grasswren tour report September 2016 - The September 2016 Six Grasswren tour was already the 11th year that we have done these tours. The aim was to see Striated, Short-tailed, Western, Thick-billed, Eyrean and Grey Grasswren and other wonderful outback bird species. The 6.5 day tour took us along the Strzelecki track through the outback of South Australia. It had been a wet winter and spring which means that the conditions were great for birding – probably the best I’d seen it in 5 years. There were plenty of wildflowers and birds breeding wherever we went. As a result of widespread rainfall deeper into the outback, many waterfowl had deserted their traditional wetlands to go breeding in those flooded areas, which were beyond the reach of this tour. Nevertheless, a grand total of 152 quality outback species were recorded during the tour. Read on for the daily summary and bird checklist.
  • Regent Parrot Highlights of South Australia tour September 2016 - The Highlights of South Australia birding tour provides an insight into the range of habitats present in South Australia, which contain some unique bird species including a small number of endemics. From the lush and green Mt Lofty Ranges around Adelaide to the outback deserts with spectacular mountain ranges, the bird-rich wetlands along the Murray River, beautiful coastal scenery and vast expanses of the famous semi-arid mallee scrublands, tour has it all.
  • RCA Red Centre tour report July 2016 - The “Red Centre”, as Australia’s outback around Alice Springs is named, hosts a variety of exciting bird species. Using Alice Springs as a base, this 4-day tour took daily trips out to different areas targeting enigmatic birds such as Dusky Grasswren, Rufous-crowned Emu-wren, Spinifexbird, Grey Honeyeater, Western Bowerbird, Painted Finch and more. Guided by Mark Carter, the tour visited the Eastern and Western MacDonnell Ranges, the sewage works, the Old Telegraph Station, the Tanami Road, Kumoth Bore and the Deep Well Road.
  • Dusky Grasswren Nine Grasswren tour report July 2016 - The 2016 ‘Nine Grasswren tour’ started in Adelaide (SA) and finished in Alice Springs (NT). After visiting Birdlife Australia’s Gluepot Reserve (Black-eared Miner) we explored the bluebush plains around Whyalla (Western Grasswren, Splendid (turquoise) Fairy-wren) and travelled through the scenic Flinders Ranges (Short-tailed Grasswren) up to the Birdsville track where we had both Chestnut-breasted and Banded Whiteface as well as the elusive Grey Falcon and Eyrean Grasswren. Unfortunately the Grey Grasswren site was inaccessible due to flooding but we had great views of Gibberbird and Inland Dotterel.
