Birding trips from Aurora Baltic cruise

Post by rolftaggart56 » 21 Jan 2019, 09:12

We are booked for the Baltic cruise on Aurora in May 2019. Is anyone interested in joining us to find a day out birdwatching from when we stop in Norway or Sweden? Rolf.

not impossible - we shared a table on our Black Sea cruise with a twitcher

I was never that good with the birds. But I could name every car in the Observer book of Automobiles! I've still got three editions of that!
