SUMMER 2018

Birding Tour Shares

Birding short breaks and holidays are available from early June to August. Birding much better than perceived as many great birds are on territory, active with young and therefore easy to find, watch and photograph, especially up here in the cooler north.

"Hire Stephen. He has superior knowledge of bird songs, ID and locations. He doesn't miss target birds. 150 lifers in July!" Dave and Kara Mudd, Canada

AUTUMN 2018

Birding Tour Shares

Birding short breaks and holidays are available to focus on the best of post-breeding bird migration and dispersal between mid-August and early November, when you can also capitalise on Summer breeders or Winter arrivals respectively.

“I loved birding with Stephen. He knows his birds and where to find them. Great guide, friendly and flexible... and lots of birds!" Jory Langner, U.S.A.

"Excellent two days. It's very useful to travel with a knowledgeable birder who understands the natural history of the birds and their distribution when visiting new areas looking for specific species.” Brian Coleman, England

“I can highly recommend both the tour and Stephen as a guide.” Matias, Finland

"I didn't expect to see so many of the little brown jobs that are such as challenge for north american birders. Stephen not only knew all their calls and songs but had a knack for helping me see them well. I'm looking forward to a return visit." Elwood Hain, U.S.A.

"Without your guidance I would have probably only found fifty percent of what was there. I certainly would not have got within three yards of a nightjar." Andy Strouthous, UK

"A terrific day, made more enjoyable by the lovely friendly personality of Stephen. We were very impressed with his sharing of his extensive knowledge without us feeling inferior. If you want good birding contact him." Bill and Doreen Colvin, Ireland

“Incredible trip - a great day from start to finish! We really appreciated your superb abilities. That day was the highlight of my trip to Barcelona.” Jan O’Brien, Canada

"We were very impressed with you and your intimate knowledge of the birds and the surroundings and we hope that we can arrange something next year." Jeff Roffey, Mike Thompson, England





FAMILY HOLIDAYS - with 'choose your own' guided bird tour/s


A birding holiday or short break at any time of the year where you can bring non-birding friends and family with you!

You can spend as many days as you like bird watching whilst they entertain themselves by the swimming pool, in the games room, on the beach in Sitges or shopping and sightseeing in Barcelona.

There's also a Universal family theme park nearby, tours of the local wine and cava vineyards and outdoor activities such as horse riding.

Of course, with the spectacle of the Pyrenees on offer, there's always a chance they'll want to join us at the last minute.

"We would thoroughly recommend your holidays to anyone.

The Steppes was one of the best birding sessions we've ever had. So many excellent birds in such a short space of time was exhilarating. We really enjoyed your excellent company and hospitality and picnic lunches will never be the same again." David and Chris Evans

"We were able to bird at a leisurely pace and Stephen ensured all the family were involved and entertained. His villa is an excellent base to combine a birding trip with a family holiday in Spain. We really loved the accommodation."
David, Christine and Matthew (age 11) Spencer

"Thank you so much for our holiday. We all enjoyed ourselves enormously and the range of birds we saw exceded my best hopes. We certainly picked the right person to lead us."
David, Jenny and Peter Linstead

""We had an excellent week with you and enjoyed looking at some great birds."
Carol and Don Downie
