Want to find out more about waders? Then this is the trip for you! We will visit a variety of sites seeking out these long distance migrants and look at the best ways to identify waders. We hope you will pick up lots of tips on wader identification and be amazed by the journeys these migrants undertake. Of course we will enjoy lots of other birds too on this exciting daytrip. Our itinerary will depend on the latest bird news and the weather on the day.
