Introduction

 

Pallas's Warbler

 

Here at Oriole Birding we have always been proud of our portfolio of UK migration-based tours, with Norfolk, Cornwall, Shetland and East Yorkshire featuring among our regular destinations and turning up some rare and exciting birds. Our tours always aim to try and find our own birds and with that in mind, we are delighted to introduce a new itnerary to our migration portfolio, guided by Durham's county recorder Andrew Kinghorn. Andrew has been guiding trips around his local region for the last couple of years and knows the area intimately, being well connected and knowing many good spots off the beaten track to search for incoming autumn migrants. On this six night itineray, split into two bases of three nights apiece, you will be exploring many little known East coast locations as well as some popular ones such as the excellent North Tees marshes and RSPB Saltholme. After spending a couple of days sampling the Durham hotspots (many of which will be new to regular Oriole clients) we move north to an area many of you will be familiar with from our very popular North-east England June tours. Druridge Bay, with its network of excellent coastal reserves, and Holy Island - a rarity hotspot on this coast - will be on the agenda. Based in the picturesque town of Rothbury, we will be ideally placed to cover these areas on the second leg of the tour. An exciting foray into the North-east in autumn awaits! Your tour leader will be Andrew Kinghorn and you can expect to see around 130 species.
