I’m moving to New Jersey in June, so if you’d like to go on a personalized weekend tour in and around California with me as your guide, the only available weekends are April 9-10, April 16-17, April 30-May 1, and May 14-15. The cost will be $300 per weekend plus expenses; I’m willing to go as far as Yuma or any place in OR and NV.
Also, it just transpired that I’ll be in Europe in July-August. The plan is to spend a couple weeks with my wife and kid in southern Greece, do a very quick side trip to Crete, then explore all Balkan countries by car for about ten days. I’ll be certainly visiting Cape Kaliakra, the highest part of Romanian Carpathians, Dunai Delta, Lake Orchid, Meteora, Tara National Park in Serbia, and Jon’s site for Dinaromys in Bosnia (Jon, do you have GPS coordinates, by any chance?) Any other locations not mentioned in trip reports here? I’ll be mostly looking for small mammals (up to the size of marbled polecat), but would also like to see the three local chamois subsp., and particularly the monk seal. Are there any viewable seals this year? I’ve seen all birds of the area, but herping tips are also welcome (in particular, is there a place where I could see olms in the wild?)
