The Buddhist Kingdom of Bhutan protects some of the largest remaining swathes of Himalayan forest. Lush broad-leaved forests dripping with orchids, blazes of rhododendrons and magnolias, seemingly endless coniferous forests, and arguably the most spectacular mountain scenery in the world are found here. The Bhutanese birds are no less extravagant with a brilliant array of colours and seldom-seen rarities including species that are unlikely to be encountered outside of this pristine Kingdom.
Key species include Himalayan Monal, Satyr Tragopan, White-bellied Heron, Ibisbill, Ward’s Trogon, Rufous-necked Hornbill, Beautiful Nuthatch, Sikkim Wedge-billed Babbler and Fire-tailed Myzornis.
These and many others will be covered during this lecture on this very special country.
