Peru, May 2008

This was "The six faces of Peru" trip organised by Ramblers Worldwide Holidays (see also Costa Rica). Although not primarily a bird-watching trip, I managed to photograph 160+ species of birds in 16 days, which is quite good. I thank the other ramblers who spotted birds for me, and Victor and Bedda at the Heliconia lodge near Iquitos for pointing out various birds on the Amazon.
