In April we visited the mountain kingdom of Georgia, on the southern border of Russia where the birds are as spectacular as the scenery. We loved this dramatic and friendly country which has fine wines and wonderful food but most importantly some of the most sought after birds in Europe.

Another of the "big five" most wanted birds in Georgia - Guldenstadt's Redstart.

Ruth's latest article in the just published edition of Birdwatching Magazine descibes some of the many highlights from our tour. Do have a read and then come and join our next tour to this magical location in April 2021. We have a good deal of interest already so if you would like to join us please don't delay. Small group, just six guests with three guides to ensure the best customer service and the best chances of seeing the special birds here.

We know you will love Georgia and its mind-blowing birds and scenery, from snow-capped mountains, forests, rolling plains, wetlands and the beautiful capital city of Tbilisi there are birds everywhere.

We expect to enjoy around 180 species of bird including mouth-watering species such as Caucasian Snowcock, Caucasian Black Grouse, Wallcreeper, Red-fronted Serin, Pallid Harrier, Steppe, Golden, Booted and Lesser Spotted Eagles, Red-footed Falcon, Lammergeier, Hoopoe, European Bee-eater, Black Francolin, Chukar Partridge, Calandra Lark, Black Stork, it really is teaming with birds!

The most beautiful and amazing Wallcreeper, we enjoyed superb close views!
