New trip Report – Andalucian Lynx and Mega Mammals of the Med

April 29, 2010

Hello, I just got back from 2 weeks in Australia and the Western USA. Sorry for the silences and for not uploading the various reports I was sent while I was away.

I was with my kids but still managed to see a few nice things, including 8 new rodents in the States one of which was my 1000th mammal. Will blog on that trip in a few days.

Meanwhile I’ve been sent some trip reports while I was away and the first is from Mark Hows, who spent a week in Spain and saw 21 or more species including Iberian Lynx.
