    Welsh day trip An early morning start on 16th February 2019, travelling to Llandudno to meet Alan Davies and Ruth Miller along with two other birders, for a “Best of North Wales” birdwatching day trip. It was a chilly and blustery day, but then it was February. With a fantastic start to the day with a Rose coloured starling, superb views. Then to head to Anglesey, where we caught up with Pale-bellied Brent Geese, lots of waders including Redshank, Curlew, Dunlin & Grey Plover. A short drive to Holyhead harbour to find Red-breasted Mergansers very close views & a couple of Black Guillemots also showing well. We headed to McDonalds (not for lunch) but to see Hooded crow, before breaking for a lovely lunch at a very warm and friendly cafe. Time to head back out and brave the conditions, not to be disappointed, we caught up with Long-tailed duck, Goldeneye, Lapwing, Goosander, Teal, Gadwall, Greylag and Canada Geese, Chough, Peregrine, Kestrel, we also had a brief stop at a Forrest and encountered lots of woodland birds. I can honestly say I had the most amazing day, so much so I booked another trip visiting another area of North Wales on the 27th February. Again seeing more fantastic birds. I can honestly say Alan and Ruth are fantastic and ensure a full, fun, day with so many species. Alan and Ruth cater for both new and experienced birders alike and for any beginner birder, don’t be afraid to ask as both Alan and Ruth are more than happy to explain. Definitely 10 out of 10 and really looking forward to my next trip, very soon.

    We headed out to Anglesey in a very comfortable 4x4, the weather was not at its best but then it was January! Throughout the day there were plenty of laughs and some great birds due to Alan and Ruth's expert guiding. We battled the winds and a hailstorm on the cliff side at South Stack but still managed to see some lovely Chough. We warmed up with a lovely lunch and then set off again. Not only special birds, but days to day birds as well kept coming as we went to many beautiful areas across the Island, Alan and Ruth know the area well and where to find the birds. There was a real highlight for me when Alan spotted a Merlin and we all had wonderful views. I hadn't seen one of these beautiful birds for quite a few years so I was really pleased. We ended our day on the edge of an estuary in the marshland, soaking up the wonderful surroundings and the sights and sounds of birdlife preparing to roost. A thoroughly enjoyable day.

Why book with Birdwatching Trips?

We have two guides on most of our UK tours, so a maximum three-to-one guest-to-guide ratio, and three guides on most of our overseas tours so an even better guest-to-guide ratio of two-to-one. Very few companies can offer this amazing level of customer service and attention to detail. It means we can do our utmost to ensure each and every guest has the very best experience, and just as importantly, it gives us the flexibility to really take care of you in the unlikely event of illness or accident. We have the personnel to look after you, while ensuring the rest of the group continues to enjoy their birdwatching. We are fully compliant with the Package Travel Regulations 2018 and use specialist lawyers to the travel industry to ensure this is the case. We have Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance and Financial Insolvency Insurance to protect both you and your money. We only recommend bonded airlines to book your flights with, again ensuring you are protected. If you are comparing Birdwatching Trips to other bird tour companies, please check the guest-to-guide ratios on their tours and if they have the correct legal protection in place. Many do not, putting you and your money at risk in these uncertain times. Another aspect of our tours that sets us apart from other tour companies is that we always provide our guests with good quality accommodation and enjoy great food on all our tours! You will stay in lovely places wherever possible, and enjoy delicious and regular meals. Not for our clients the experience of sitting in a steamed-up minibus while you eat supermarket sandwich and call it lunch! We never forget that you are not just on a Birdwatching Trip, you're on holiday too, and we know that lovely accommodation and delicious food are an important part of the whole experience. Of course, we know that by making sure that you're well-rested and well-fed throughout the tour, you can really enjoy all the birds when you see them. We also have a vast experience of birds, birdwatching, guiding and travel behind us. As two world record-breaking birders, there are very few people who can come close to the amount of bird-related travel that we have been lucky enough to enjoy. All this experience comes in to play when we plan our tours and ensure that our tours run smoothly wherever we may be in the world. Over many years we have built up an enormous number of trusted friends and contacts all over the globe that we know we can rely on to help us in all sorts of ways should the need arise. When you're travelling with Birdwatching Trips, you are engaging with a whole community of bird-loving amazing people all around the world!
