I saw Jon’s post re lesser known mammal spots (my personal favourite is Pico, Azores – probably one of the best cetacean watching places on the planet)… Currently locked-down, I was thinking of the list of places that I want to visit in the world for mammal-watching – a list which seems to grow rather than shrink owing to the brilliant reports that keep on being posted here. With that list and this community in mind, I thought we could start to compile a “where-to-go-when” list. The hope would be that we think about a few countries and in time come up with quite a long list of the best times to go to each place. I would then be happy to also convert this into a look-up guide, allowing people to go from available dates to places, as well places to best times. To get the ball rolling, I thought I would ask about a few of the places that are definitely on my “to visit” list, and we can go from there.
So they are:
If you have any suggestions for the best times in these countries/best times for particular sites within them, then please post below. I guess we’ll see how things go, and then hopefully move on to some more countries in a week or so!
