We have had the pleasure of sharing some incredible sightings with our clients in the past few months. On a private tour in Namibia, Rainer Summers has managed to find all five possible courser species! This is an incredibly difficult family, and recording Burchell’s, Temminck’s, Double-banded, Bronze-winged and Three-banded all on one tour is just unheard of! In Cameroon, the African Pitta put in a surprise appearance when it displayed during our May tour to this amazing central African country. Other highlights here were incredible views of the Grey-necked Rockfowl, all three species of Flufftail, Golden Nightjar and Rufous-rumped Lark. On another private tour in the Philippines, David recorded over 130 endemics that included Bukidnon Woodcock, Luzon Bleeding-heart walking down the road, Palawan Scops-Owl, Scale-feathered Malkoha and Azure-breasted Pitta, as well as great views of the Philippine Eagle – often considered the world’s most wanted bird! Bhutan is another highlight-filled tour that was recently completed and the group managed to find Satyr Tragopan, Blood Pheasant, Himalayan Monal, Ibisbill, Ward’s Trogon, Beautiful Nuthatch, Wedge-billed Wren-Babbler, Rufous-necked Hornbill, Mrs Gould’s Sunbird, Fire-tailed Myzornis – all the major targets for the trip. On the pre-tour extension, the major highlight was finding the incredibly rare and difficult White-winged Duck.
