Sultan-MarshesWe had visited Turkey during September 2012. The tour was a "recce" tour. We had travelled from the Sultan Marshes, to the Adalaglar Mountains, Goksu Delta and from there to Adana and Gaziantep. Although September is not the very best time to visit Turkey, we all had a marvelous tour, enjoying good birding, beautiful scenery, fantastic food and lovely people. Turkey will certainly be one of our prime destinations in the future.
