TRIP INDEX by year

The following lists and gives links to the relevant blogs of all the foreign birding (and some family) trips that I have been on. It is ordered by year with the most recent year first. Blogs of the older trips use scanned slides, some having degraded badly with age, or digitised prints of varying qualitySome use photos taken by those I was with. These are usually easy to tell as they are significantly better than mine and are acknowledged in most cases. Many of the older blogs are based on my unreliable memories where my notes are very lacking in detail, other than the birds seen, something I now greatly regret. The blogs were initially done to find a 'home' for boxes of old slides which I had not looked at for years, my dad giving me his slide scanner providing the necessary impetus to digitise them. Doing these blogs has brought back many very happy memories, and a few sad ones. I’ve been very fortunate in having various like-minded friends whom I have usually been able to travel with. Sadly an increasing number are no longer with us including. The Covid-19 Lockdown has given me the opportunity to fill in all remaining gaps so, until I can travel abroad again, the following list is complete.
Kagu, New Caledonia August 1998 (digitised print originally taken with an instamatic).  One of my current all-time top four birds. Giant Pitta (1987), displaying Wilson's Bird of Paradise (1993) and displaying Western Parotia (2013) are the others.
