Just had two weeks on Tobago with a day trip to Trinidad visiting Asa Wright Centre,( not that good) and Coroni Swamp (awesome) I saw 135 species with 84 of them being new birds, lots leave Tobago though sept-oct and go to the mainland returning December onwards. Waders moved through in the first week and there were more Sea Birds, as in Larger Numbers the first week, the Weather became unsettled in the second week, with more rain, cloud, wind but still hot and Humid, We stayed at Turtle Beach but beware there's nothing to do the hotel was shocking, Good Beds but the food was poor the service even worse, and the bar shut before eleven most nights and we had all inclusive? if you go Pay the Extra and stay at Blue Waters the other end of the island. We did the rain forest walk, never again with the guides there they talk to much and miss to many birds, The boat trip out to Little Tobago most of the Sea Birds had gone, but we still saw loads, Buccoo Marsh overgrown hard to find and not worth going anymore, Grafton estate is the same and they never fed the birds the night we were there, Arnos Vale is not as good as Adventure right next to it, the hummers are better at Adventure we had 3 species out of season inches from your face.
Loads of pics to look through will put them on blog over the next few weeks as i sort through them.
