the brits are coming!!
- hi all in sunny SW Florida.Those of you that read my posts earlier
in the year will have seen that my family and I were hoping to visit
your area on vacation again.We've booked now so will be Florida
bound on October 27th,and then spending a week at sanibel arms west
condo's from oct 28th.
My reason for posting today is partly to ask if there are any
organised field trips on Sanibel that week,that I might join.Due to
family activities,I could probably only spend a few hours
birding,rather than all day,but I'd like the opportunity to catch a
few late migrants,or residents that I might normally miss,as a
tourist!I usually manage a quick look around the lighthouse
area,plus at least one look around Ding darling.
Secondly,I'm into digiscoping,but have found my results to be rather
disappointing,and struggle to get good focus.I'm therefore thinking
of going to a digital slr camera with telephoto lens.Are there any
good camera outlets in SW Florida,that might be "birder friendly".Or
would I expect to get a better bargain if I looked at some of the
outlet stores in Orlando,after we leave Sanibel?
any other tips for a successful visit to sanibel around Halloween
time are greatly received.many thanks
