Images From Our Recent Best Of North Wales Tour February 2019

Spectacular scenery on the Isle of Anglesey on day one of the three day trip.

Tony and Eva came up to North Wales for a three day custom Birdwatching Trips tour, the big advantage of a custom tour compared to a set departure tour is that we could tailor the holiday just for them. So we were able to use a Llandudno Hotel that was just right for Tony and Eva, start each day at a time ideal for them, select cafes and restuarants that served just the type of food they like. But the really big plus was that we could look for the birds that Tony and Eva were particularly interested in seeing, very glad to report that all the birds they really wanted to see we did! Whew!

These two Hooded Crows were hanging out at a fast food joint in Holyhead!

OK not a great photo but it was dusk, Hen Harrier comes in to roost, wonderful.

Day two of the custom tour started with more spectacular scenry - Great Orme.

Black Redstart Gt Orme Oct 2016 2

After a search we found a Black Redstart at the mouth of the River Clwyd.

Hawfinch Roy de Hass

So many great birds on day three, a pair of Hawfinch really showed off for us.

Another advantage of the custom tour, taking time to help Tony with his bridge-camera.

We spent a few hours, as the rain came down, in a wonderful hide with views of an estuary and a woodland pool. Here Ruth was able to help Tony get the best from his Lumix bridge-camera taking time to try different settings and Tony was thrilled with the improved images. Even a humble, very beautiful, Blue Tit was an ideal subject to practice with the new camera. We enjoyed great birds from the hide including super views of Water Rail, Goosander, Greenshank and lots of other waders, perfect spot for a wet spell.

What a way to finish a three day custom tour - Starling murmuration!

A wonderful three days enjoying the amazing birds of North Wales in beautiful scenery and enjoying great food! Well over 100 species enjoyed and all of Tony and Eva's wanted birds seen and enjoyed.
