We like to be seen as a diverse and energetic group of people, who focus not solely on birds,
but explore all other aspects of nature, whether it be mammals, reptiles, insects or more.
Our trips offer add-ons such as photography focused tours, mammal excursions for those
harder to see nocturnal mammals, reptile focused searches, and even bird ringing, whether
you are an active ringer, observer or would like to learn the ropes and become qualified.
