In Partnership with the Spurn Observatory Trust and Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, together we are offering a very special event again! 3 Days of great birding action. I will be guiding the 3 days, assisted by Spurn’s top team. Birds like Red-backed Shrike, Golden Oriole, Icterine Warbler, Red-rumped Swallow and  Bluethroat are regularly seen at this time of year. There is even the chance of something much rarer. Mid/late May has produced birds like Great Reed Warbler, Thrush Nightingale, Hume’s Warbler and Black-faced Bunting. 2 nights, 3 days full board plus packed lunches.

Monday 28th – Wed. 30th May, 2012.  £270 per person 

Places limited on first-come, first-served basis.

6 reasons to come and join me:

  1. Visible Migration on a scale unparalleled anywhere in Britain
  2. Scarce and rare bird hunting
  3. Bird Identification Masterclass
  4. High Arctic breeding waders in full breeding plumage
  5. Small group size
  6. Full board accommodation with Sue’s famed cooking at Westmere Farm
There will also be daily access to ringing studies, moth trapping (again one of Britain’s top coastal spots) and a variety of other wildlife.

In association with: Spurn Bird Observatory and the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust


Reviews from 3 Day Special in May 2011:

  “I drove home… my mind overall euphorically happy over a superb few days. It was not only the birding, but the wonderful friendliness of all the team at Spurn.”
 Reg O.
“Three days at one of the best birding sites in the country during the last week of May, staying at Westmere farm, guided by some of the best birders in the country was too good to turn down. Sea-watching ‘viz-migging’, bush bashing, scrape watching and hide-bashing at its best. Montagu’s Harrier, Tawny Pipit, Hooded Crow, Curlew Sand, Owls and hundreds of seabirds the results.
Spurn is a place I visit several times a year, but I learnt so much about the site and its birds from the three days I’m going to enjoy it even more in the future. A superb three days thanks to Martin, Andrew and Sue at Westmere and the Spurn Bird Observatory lads.”

“Hi Martin
What can I say?  Absolutely loved it!!!!
It was a real pleasure; I acquired so much knowledge over the few days at Spurn.  Bird ID and behaviour, local knowledge of the area in terms of top birding sites and natural history in general.  I would definitely be interested in participating in another trip…
The accommodation at Westmere Farm was top class, the hosts Sue and Andy were very welcoming and the home cooking was excellent.”
