Having left Thailand at the end of June I had a 2 week house quarantine followed by several more weeks of free afterwards in Slovakia. I travelled quite a lot, mainly hoping to see some large mammals. After several failed attempts I finally managed to see an Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx) in the wild for the first time at the end of the trip. A true European highlight! Thanks to Andrej Valaska who accompanied me for most parts of this trip around Slovakia.
