A few images from a short birding trip in June 2013. During the week we visited some diverse and interesting sites, searching for some rare Western Palearctic species. Sites included Akseki in the foothills of the Toros mountains with its low montain Pine and Ceder forests, Demirkazik in the higher Aladag Mountain range, reaching 3756m for specialist montain species such as Caspian Snowcock and Radde's Accentor, Birecik in the South east with its Dry desert Wadi's, Sandstone cliffs, Pistachio Orchards and dry steppe, and more lush gravel pits on the banks of the Euphrates for more eastern and desert species, the critically endangered Bald Ibis and specialties such as Pallid Scops Owl and Iraq Babbler among'st others then back west to the Goksu delta where the Goksu river enters the Mediterranean Sea with its coastal lagoons, rich farmland and distinct Mediterranean Saltmarsh vegetation. Finally visiting a remote reservoir near Antalia the only know site in the western Palearctic for the Brown-fish Owl, here we saw two pairs one of which had a single well grown chick. All in all a very good trip with some good old mates Bola Akinola, Bruce Jordon and Pete Rolph.
