food – good value. We were taken to all the premier bird reserves and the
boat trip from Morston Quay was especially memorable seeing the diving
terns, red breasted merganser and seals resting up on the shore.”

The Club was set up in 2012 to run value for money bird watching trips for birders on a budget.

So, if you have been inspired by nature programmes on TV, but then frustrated by the prices in the glossy ornithological holiday or nature trekking magazines, then ‘Bargain Birding Club’ is for you!

We specialise in offering bird watching themed trips to local RSPB groups and their families and friends.
