Leaders: Neil Donaghy or Paul Roberts

Introduction

 

Grasshopper Warbler

 

The under watched South Wales coastline offers some superb birding during the spring migration, and our selection of tours are timed to coincide with the peak birding period and highest variety of species. These tours are ideally suited to those who wish to improve their identification skills and first time visitors to the UK. We can expect to see a good variety of species and this includes getting to know many species of birdsong. The classic Welsh species such as Dipper, Grey Wagtail, Pied Flycatcher, Common Redstart, Wood Warbler, Red Kite and Common Raven are all catered for, along with a selection of rarer birds, while commoner migrants are often far more numerous than at east coast hotspots. There is also plenty of interest for the more experienced birder with species such as European Honey Buzzard, Red-billed Chough, Dartford Warbler and a wide variety of raptors, shorebirds and seabirds all possible and there is always the possibility of a few unusual species. The walks are over a variety of terrains but there is nothing too strenuous and average four miles a day.  Neil Donaghy and/or Paul Roberts will lead this holiday and will collect and deliver you to the hotel on a daily basis. You can expect to see approximately 120 species and it is possible that we will also visit sites not mentioned in the main itinerary.
