  • analysing anonymised data to help us understand how people interact with our website so we can make them better

Pledge 2 Fledge Jordanian-style

As we were in Jordan at the time of the inaugural global weekend event for Pledge 2 Fledge (P2F), we decided this was the perfect opportunity to fledge some Jordanian birders!

P2F Bed 9

Haytham our driver tries out binoculars for the very first time

P2F Bed 10

So that's how you hold them, now it's time to see some birds

P2F Bed 13

Tristram's Grackle, a species of starling and a lifer for Ruth, was a perfect first bird for Haytham

P2F Bed 11

After some gentle birding, building Haytham's list nicely, it was time to enjoy a wonderful Jordanian meal. Birds and food - such a great combination!

P2F Bed 2

We meet the local Bedouin tribesmen in the spectacular desert of Wadi Rum

P2F Bed 1

We were soon into P2F mode showing the local Sooty Falcons to our new friends

P2F Bed 4

News quickly spread as more tribesmen on camels arrived to join in the fun!

P2F Bed 8

Mourning Wheatear showed off and made a stunning addition to our Jordanian list

P2F Bed 5

Always good to have the book on hand to check the key ID features

P2F Bed 3

A brief optics demo in the desert, Leica of course!

P2F Bed 12

The Bedouin tribesmen then showed us some birds, taking us to a nearby camp to enjoy close-up views of Sinai Rosefinch, a lifer for Ruth and Alan

P2F Bed 6

Partridge identification was the next subject: they knew Chukar and we were able to show them Sand Partridge, a new bird for us all

P2F Bed 7

Traditional Bedouin hospitality dictates that guests take tea - and a jolly nice cup of tea it was too!

We really enjoyed Jordan with its spectacular desert scenery, fascinating historical sites, superb Arab food, warm hospitality and of course, some amazing birds! We look forward to returning to this safe and welcoming country in the future. We are considering running a tour in September 2013 to coincide with bird migration and to visit the key sites including Petra, Wadi Rum, Dead Sea, Red Sea and much more! If you'd be interested in joining us on this or any of our other tours, please drop us a line on . We look forward to hearing from you!
