Additional Scottish Weekender and other forthcoming BBA trips

Due to demand, I have put on another SCOTTISH WEEKENDER tour - this one running from 3-6 May 2013. There are 3 places left at the moment - please Email for details and bookings. Target birds will include all 4 grouse species (Black, Red, Capercaillie & Ptarmigan), White-billed Diver, King Eider, Surf Scoter, White-tailed & Golden Eagles, Osprey, Peregrine, Raven, Ring Ouzel, Crested Tit and Scottish Parrot and Common Crossbills. Trips depart Junction 18 of the M25 on the Thursday evening at 1900 hours and return about midnight on Monday; are generally dawn until dusk ventures and with overnight stops in Bed & Breakfast facilities.

My NORTHERN GOSHAWK trips will take place between 1st and 16th March this year (first wave) - Monday to Friday Weather Permitting (dry, crisp & clear, with relatively light winds are optimum conditions for viewing). The trips cost £20 per person, departing Junction 18 of the M25 at 0700 hours each trip. Pre-paid vouchers will be issued on a First Come/Fisrt Served basis with a maximum of 5 persons per trip.

This year's LADY AMHERST'S PHEASANT feeding station visits are entirely fully booked up until the end of April, just three males currently surviving.

Still have places on the May trip to OHIO for migrating North American Warblers, American Woodcocks and Kirtland's Warblers, as well as spaces on the SPOON-BILLED SANDPIPER trip to CHINA in September; also perhaps 1-2 spaces on CAPE VERDES ISLAND trip, 4 on MADEIRA seawatching/endemics and possibly 1 or 2 on SCANDINAVIA tour for Owls, Seaducks, etc.

Plenty of space available on SPANISH trips, and that to the AZORES for the BULLFINCH. ALGERIAN trip currently in preparation, with 1 place on EGYPT tour for the 'famous four' and several places on combined MOROCCO/WESTERN SAHARA trip.
