So what of 2015? Well, the year has much potential.
Of all the week/weekend tours next year away from Norfolk there are only 7 places available.
A tour to the Solway in February for the Barnacle Geese, along with Grantown on Spey in April for the Scottish specialities are the first two of four tours in total to Scotland this year. The second two in May are both to Mull. All are full as is the trip to the Scillies in October … although I may be able to fit another person in if you contact me quickly.
There are still a couple of places on the East Coast Seabird Tour (photographers miss at your peril), the Wild in Wales Weekend, both in June and the Jurassic Coast Tour in July. So, if you fancy an entertaining time among a small group of people, looking at and photographing birds and other wildlife please let me know and I’ll book you a place.
Over the next few weeks I shall also be organising some speciality day tours so watch this space.
Sharon and I are off to the Azores again in July. We’re hoping to photograph Sperm Whales and maybe see something rarer like a Beaked Whale … fascinating animals rarely seen. In addition we’re also talking about going to Shetland in September. I fancy the idea of finding some rare eastern birds up there and it’s been far too long since I was last among the glorious Isles. In the meantime I shall be enjoying my Christmas present of a week in a French gite timed to coincide with the Crane migration in late February … and who knows there might be a rare woodpecker or two to find out there too!
Have you got your year organised yet?
