2018 Archive

Fancy joining me in the Rhodope Mountains of Bulgaria? 

Wallcreepers, lilies and more….

Well, you have missed your chance now. And we didn’t find Wallcreepers…

Here is a link to a short blog about the week: and here is the full tour report.

If ever there was a place in Europe which thrills the naturalist with the sheer diversity and abundance of everything – plants, butterflies and other insects, birds – all set within unspoilt upland landscapes, it is the Bulgarian Rhodope.

There are still a few places remaining on this summer’s trip  20-27th June 2018, so you too could join me and my co-leader, the Bulgarian plant and conservation expert Vlado Trifonov, in our gentle exploration of the astounding riches of the area.

Bulgaria – Rhodope Lily

Bulgaria – Pennant-winged Antlion

If you would like to more (or better still book!), please visit the Honeyguide website 

Bulgaria – mating Black-veined Whites

Bulgaria – Black Stork
