our new scheduled Day Trips in Britain
With global travel being so severely impacted by Covid-19, we thought
it would be helpful to provide a series of day trips during the coming
year, led by Lance and Nick, to a selection of excellent British birding
destinations. With Yorkshire and the Humber, and Dorset and surrounding
counties being our home bases, we believe we can offer an intimate
look at some wonderful habitats and a great selection of birds throughout
birding and wildlife on offer in Britain can be just as exciting and
rewarding as that to be found abroad. Many of us, prompted by current
limitations on foreign travel, have been discovering a renewed interest
in our own country, perhaps for its beautiful scenery and warm hospitality
or for its wildlife and birding spectacles. Being able to share this
in a small group setting, whilst adhering to any Covid regulations
in place at the time, we hope to enable our clients to reconnect with
nature and provide a satisfying way of continuing our wonderful hobby.
each trip we would provide a rendezvous point and time, usually after
the morning rush hour (though possibly earlier for some trips) from
where, after meeting and greeting, we would explore one or more neighbouring
sites for the remainder of the day. We will usually conclude around
late afternoon, though half day trips are perfectly feasible. Depending
on the coronavirus restrictions in place at the time, clients would
be expected to bring their own vehicle for the day.
and Nick look forward to welcoming and guiding you again, enjoying
a few hours together at some of Britain's finest birding locations.
