Mammals, Reptiles, Amphibians, Insects, Tracks and Signs...
Perhaps not surprisingly the time we spend in the
bird habitats of Eastern Europe, when guiding groups or birding alone, brings us into contact with
many other aspects of the natural world. When guiding we never neglect non-bird wildlife and
indeed take a great interest in all aspects of the habitats we
visit. We also arrange, upon request, specialised trips and tours that focus on Natural History in
general or specific animal groups.
