RFI For Some European Species
Still in the midst of planning our summer expedition to Europe and have some areas where perhaps some of ya’ll can help out with information,
Spanish Ibex – I have read Jon’s report about his sightings in the Sierra Nevada region near Grenada. I will be trying there for sure but I am wondering if there are any reliable sites in the Pyrenees? I will be exploring the region in and around Arrens Marous. Any other reliable sites near there? How about Somiedo?
Moufflon – Andujar is the place we plan on searching for this species while going for the Lynx. Any other good locations?
Greece – I cannot find squat about wildlife in Greece. We’re going to Athens and trying hard to get some sort of boat to take us out to Alonnisos to search for Monk Seals, but no luck at all yet. Anyone have some ideas about some places to search for mammals near Athens or a day or two out? We are thinking about heading to Crete for a couple days searching for Cretan Goats in the Samaria Gorge area…Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Abruzzo – we are staying in Abruzzo for 2.5 days to get the Chamois and give the bears a try….but I understand that we need reservations for Val de Rose trail, which I believe is the best place to see the Chamois….Does anyone know how to make reservations on line? I would like to do this well before our arrival to make sure we can do it….
Thanks in advance everyone!
