Guyana January 2014

This, the inaugural trip to Guyana for WINGSPAN BIRD TOURS, was put together by my good friend Penny Hale with a little input from myself. Penny had travelled to Guyana over 18 years ago and it came highly recommended to me from various sources. We were accompanied by a few friends, namely: Rick Robinson & Dietmar, two Americans 
with a great deal of Latin American birding experience; Mike Ambler a regular ‘wing-spanner’ and a couple of friends of Penny’s, Gill and John Stacey.  
We travelled the length and breadth of the country, we saw some amazing wildlife and visited most of the well- known Eco-lodges as well as the world famous Kaieteur Falls which was a fantastic experience.  Our bird list wasn’t phenomenal, but as this was a recce for future trips we were not expecting to see every bird that Guyana has to offer, planning routes and an itinerary for future tours was my intention.
