As the premature Autumn air has already arrived in the north of England and as I prepare for term time once again I have made a few amendments to the blog recently. This includes updating the Local Species page and uploaded a photo gallery to the Outside Europe page about my trip to Costa Rica back in 2010. The second page is going to be updated further to accommodate trips in 2015 which will, more than likely, take place outside the boundaries of Europe where I do the majority of my field work.
Only one trip is fixed so far, which although politically part of Europe it is in fact geographically part of Africa. I will spend the Christmas period on the Canary Island of Tenerife, which although not a herping trip should allow me to observe the endemic lizard species found there. I’m already thinking about trips for 2015, so far ideas such as Northern Spain and Cyprus spring to mind as well as a certain trip further a field, possibly to either Central America or the USA. We shall see.
