  2. Did you just come back from this trip? Posted 3 months ago
    1. No Ferdy, I'd torn my quadriceps tendon during the summer, but did manage to get there, just (climbing a 28 metre scaffold tower was a challenge) - we returned a couple of months ago and I'm dawdling through my photos, plenty of winter to go. Did you get away?? Posted 3 months ago
      1. Sorry, I believe you did tell me that before, hope you feel better in the meanwhile. Looking forward to seeing your "winter stock"!

        Yep, we did get away:

        1. I just had a quick glance at that trip - fabulous! The Harpy! Herps & Agami. Magic. Will wander through your trip and make it last. Thanks. By the way over the past 18 months or so Brazil has looked at some of their bird hotspots & now records over 2,000 native bird species. Take care. Posted 3 months ago
          1. 2,000....looks like Colombia needs to start splitting some species hehe. Posted 3 months ago
            1. Could go on for some time, but I'd say let the Brazilians have it, if only they get rid of Bolsonaro, otherwise there'll be nothing left (especially if the dynasty then takes over), fingers crossed for this weekend!! Posted 3 months ago
              1. Thanks for the reminder, did not know it was this Sunday. Posted 3 months ago
