Birding Breaks in the North West of England

Welcome to our web site. We have a passion for birds and we'd like to share it with you - by taking you birdwatching on the edge of the English Lake District. We run minibreaks for very small groups with all in accommodation on a house party basis, with guests joining us at our home, Barn Close.

The North West of England has two major advantages for the birdwatcher:
1. Wonderful birding
2. Very easy access

The famous RSPB Reserve of Leighton Moss is only 2 miles away and holds 4 of the UK's total of 16 male Bitterns – a rare and endangered species, plus Bearded Tits, Water Rails and Otters.

Morecambe Bay is the second most important estuary in the UK for wading birds, with totals of nearly 200,000.

Short or longer breaks are on a full board basis, including meals and transport, excluding only out of pocket expenses and Reserve entry fees.
