In May and June 2015 I was lucky to make 3 birding trips visiting friends in Cape May (USA), and friends in Karlsruhe (Germany) and then a trip to the dry, hot and wonderful dehesa dominated habitat that is Extremadura (Spain). These trip reports to be found on my blog at
Birding Trip Reports - Cape May, NJ, USA
Birding Trip Reports - Other
I hope they are both enjoyable and helpful for anyone planning birding visits to New Jersey and Europe respectively.
