Tadorna Tours – day trips
Whether you are short of time, or want a wildlife filled day out, then why not book one of our Day Trips! Our day trips are designed to make the most out of the site(s) we visit and observe the wildlife found there, although our guides specialise in birds, majority of our tours we will observe a number of different wildlife including butterflies, dragonflies, plants and mammals . Our day trips are at a gentle pace allowing you to make the most out of your time with us but also plenty of time to take in the birds and wildlife on the day.
All of our Day Trips are ran in areas we know and love giving us a vast amount of knowledge of not only the wildlife we hope to see, but also of the site itself. Our tours are led by ornithologists or conservationists in areas they have experience of, the small group sizes enables us to give a personal experience to everyone and for everyone to truly enjoy the wildlife we are seeing but also we can adapt our pace to suit our guests with plenty of time for photography and admirations.
