The end, and the beginning

For anyone reading this who wasn't already aware, the trip is over, we're safely back in England.

It was an epic journey and we had a fantastic time, seeing incredible places, meeting some truly excellent people and of course, some mind-boggling birding. The final trip list was a monster 873!!! of which about 850 were recorded in the 3 months from leaving the Tip of Long Point, Canada to departing Panama City.
Of course, now i'm back I have the monumental task of sorting through stacks of photographs, here's the first installment, all from the peninsula of Baja California, in North-western Mexico.

Spotted Sandpiper

Blue-footed Booby

Yellow-footed Gull

Double-crested Cormorant

Clark's Grebe

Savannah Sparrow

Sage Sparrow

Western Sandpiper

American Avocet
To be honest (and it may well become painfully obvious as I continue to upload photos) I took relatively few shots on this trip. I simply found that it was challenging enough getting good looks at birds, particulalry in rainforest/jungle (which most of our birding was in).
Still, I managed to take a fair few shots, and i'll be slowly sorting through them over the coming weeks/months/years, so be sure to check back frequently.
