Sedge Warbler is not the most colorful of British birds, but its voice is a very pleasing mixture of varied phrases that bring life to the reedbeds it inhabits. The French name "Phragmite des joncs" does a better job of capturing this species' essence! Photo by participant Jeanette Shores.
Over the years, a few species held in captivity have flown the coop and have established wild populations in the United Kingdom. Mandarin Duck must surely be the most beautiful of the bunch. Jeanette Shores photographed this pair at Thetford Forest, host to a small population of this Asian relative of North America's Wood Duck.
Spain! What lovelier place to be in springtime than the Iberian Peninsula? These Spanish Ibex entertained the group in the Gredos Mountains on the spring Spain tour, guided by Chris Benesh (who took this photo) and Godfried Schreur.
