It had to happen sometime, after 28 games unbeaten we have lost at Charlton. We were winning 1-0 at half time but the home team were awarded a penalty that never was early in the second half and went on to win the game. We are still top of the league.
Went to see IDLES with Ruby at the Electric Ballroom in Camden.

Before we left Ensenada there was time for a walk down to the sea where we spotted a couple of Surfbirds
We spent our last full day returning to San Jose but we did have time for a couple of stops on the way.

Our final destination was the La Ensenada Wildlife Refuge and my first impression was that it was the hottest place we had visited. Whilst here we had a boat trip out to the mangroves early in the morning where we saw Mangrove Hummingbird, Panama Flycatcher, Mangrove Warbler (Yellow Warbler), Boat-billed Heron and many other birds. We also had a tractor ride to the salt pans, a lake and hill with a great view over the area.
White-throated Magpie-Jay. These birds would often join us in the lodge at meal times hoping for scraps
We stopped at Carara National Park for a few hours on our way to our final destination and saw quite a few new birds.
Dot-winged Antwren (female)
The sounds and sights from Macaw Lodge early morning.
We left the Highlands and travelled to Macaw Lodge during day 9 of the trip. It was a long journey but broken up with a couple of stops as usual which allowed us to see some new birds enroute such as Red-headed Barbet and Roadside Hawk. We arrived at Macaw Lodge in the dark and the noise of the jungle at night was amazing.
