WHERE THE PAGER TAKES US – EARLY AUTUMN BIRDING

The weather is the key to this trip!

If the winds are from the north then we head to the coast in search of seabirds such as Arctic, Great, Long-tailed and Pomarine Skuas, along with a supporting cast of Northern Gannets and maybe a shearwater or petrel.

If winds are easterly then anything is possible! Among the common migrants such as Northern Wheatear, Whinchat, Yellow Wagtail and Common Redstart, something rarer may turn up with Red-breasted Flycatcher, Eurasian Wryneck, Red-backed Shrike or Bluethroat likely at this time of year.

On previous tours we have seen Little Crake, Wilson’s Phalarope, Pectoral Sandpiper, Siberian Stonechat, Booted Warbler, Buff-breasted Sandpiper, American Golden Plover and Glossy Ibis amongst others.

Up-to-the-minute information on our bird pagers ensure we make the most of the day!
