  • Specific branchs of natural history such as dragon flies, frogs or butterflies – although the primary interests of our guides is usually birds most of them are really good all-round naturalists.
  • Photographers – We recognise that photographers have different needs to the general birder or wildlife enthusiast and are happy to devise itineraries with photographers in mind. Three of our guides are keen photographers themselves and have a good understanding of what is required.
  • Targeted species – We are happy to devise itineraries based on target species.
