MY YEAR

This talk is a calendar of the previous year's exploits, with highlights from each month.   This talk is also an ideal introduction to the other talks available.


 

CALIFORNIAN SUNSHINE

Flying  into San Francisco in June 2016, Paul and Julia soon left the streets behind, heading over the Golden Gate bridge for a few days before heading south to Monterey for cetaceans, then on to Yosemite and back to San Francisco.  Bears, whales and dolphins complemented the birds seen and photographed.


 

GAMBIAN EXPERIENCE


Paul and Julia visited Gambia in January 2017 and 2018, and again in December 2022.  Share their experience as they venture up river and back to the Atlantic coast.

TARIFA - GATEWAY TO AFRICA

Tarifa in Andalucia is famous for the numbers of birds that pass through on their way to North Africa each Autumn and then again in Spring on their northwards migration. We have made trips to Tarifa in 2017, 2018 and 2019.


BEAR ESSENTIALS​

In May 2019, Paul visited Finland, close to the border with Russia, where he spent five days photographing Brown Bears, Wolverines and other wildlife in Taiga.  He has since returned four times.
